Autumn Ritual


The fire is lit

The fall has come

The days grow short

At the setting sun

The witches howl

The children play

Sweaters are worn

For the chilly days

Time will rearrange

As seasons show off

The colors change

Haiku


Out here where woodpeckers

Vibrate in the distant trees

Song birds my symphony

A morning run

A rising sun glows ahead

It is ok

December 2


Let me see if I

can add miles to my run

As Christmas draws near

Haiku 2019 CMM December

Frosty Moon


Limbs are bare

The crisp night air

The moon freezes time

Clouds abate

In twilight late

Moon insist to shine .

Haiku


Twilight crest after

midnight storm gives way to verdant

grass, and hope appears …

Autumn


autumnal Equinox gently arrives

warmth of the summer lost in the skies

Burnt orange and red are made of your dress

A sigh of relief now we will soon rest

From a summer of drought and too little rain

We will put it behind us; wait for seasons to change

Haiku


a tender moment

Mother and daughter share time

While the children play
