Seven Haiku for You

Poem of the Day, Sunday, November 12, 2023

"Seven Haiku for You"

Water flows calmly
through cottonwoods and sunshine
whispers life to all.

Leaves rustle and fall
slowly down, down, on the ground
giving life to earth


My breath coalesces
perforates clouds in the sky
returns with water.

Praying mantis clings
to hidden stems beneath leaves
perfect camouflage.

Pinks, oranges, and reds
create sunsets for all to see
for brief moments of time.

Silence in the woods
interrupted by the chirping
of living forest.

Calla lilies bloom
their majesty overwhelms
our lives forever.
