antique flea market
turning over treasures
to check the tags


August 22, 2014

giving up at last
the boxwood that seemed lovely
under all that snow


August 21, 2014

slow down, summer!
there’s still that whole field of corn
in need of picking



August 20, 2014

lake's edge
a hint of daybreak
becomes a promise


(This haiku was improved by a friendly suggestion from Grace Galton.)

the hiss of a swan
as you walk near her nest
threat assessment


August 18, 2014

geese with their one note
old aunts harping on
about our manners


August 17, 2014

sweet distraction
the bright sound of finches
just out of sight
