A Haiku Each Day

Sixty-two hundred and five Syllables a year.

Archive for metaphor


Maple samaras
Tiny green helicopters
Twirling from the trees.


A fresh gust of wind
Lifts the weeping willow’s skirt
Swirling green pollen.


Pale green jewelweed
Silverplated by the dew
Early May morning.


Purple fireworks
Bursting from a long green stem
Allium in bloom.

Spring Morning

Watercolor sky
Awaits the painter’s last touch
Just before sunrise.


Bursting on the tongue
Juicy purple amethysts
A stem of black grapes.

Harbinger II

Listen – in the sky
Tiny jet planes twittering
Chimney swifts are here!
