haiku: country roads

country roads
reflections of light
from new steel roofs

Published in on down the road, Haiku Society of America 2017 Members’ Anthology, edited by LeRoy Gorman.

I wrote this poem for EarthRise Rolling Haiku Collaboration 2015: The Year of Light, The Haiku Foundation.

Garden Poems

We are grateful for the perennials that previous owners planted, and that return every year. These include snowdrops, daffodils, tulips, primroses, ferns, daylilies, and hosta. We have added plants too, and wildflowers are welcome.

kitchen window
perennials grow
near the old trees

I wonder
what today’s poem may be
lilacs in the wind

each flower
a star for a time

to read again

flowers grow well
in the gardens
hope for butterflies
