Haiku – Summer 2019

You are welcome to reprint my poems with proper credit. Ideas include bulletin boards in classrooms, libraries, hospitals, nursing homes – places where a short poem may be an encouragement to someone or help with a poetry lesson. Thank you.

early sun fills
a bouquet of flowers

summer sun
thrift store bowl painted
with leaves and fruit

Friday morning
fresh water
for the daisies

Saturday morning
so happy with the plants
we bought on sale

early Sunday
raindrops in some light
on evergreen branches

early morning
hosta flowers grow
above the windowsill

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me
