gardens in winter
the serene snowfall
and remembering
where snowdrops
will bloom

The snowdrops here are blooming again.

In January 2016, we updated my Poet Details page at the Haiku Registry.  Billie Wilson was the Editor then.  The registry is a Resource at The Haiku Foundation. Please visit The Haiku Foundation for current information.

at the library
and I say thank you
then help someone else

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not from us.
2 Corinthians 4: 7

Haiku For The Seasons

how small the song
of an unknown bird
quiet memories


praying the Psalms
old rose bush leans
against evergreens


lake and sky
the same color
Autumn Equinox


late November
sun fills a glass
for a time

Time Of Singing, Fall 2013


staying with the light
I read in different corners
of the house


how still
the winter landscape
I whisper the Psalms


daffodils bowed by rain


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