Topic starter  

a robin

warming

a frosted gate

 

walking

a different path

on yesterday's footprints

 

in the kitchen

light on the curve

of a teaspoon

 

this broken gate

unbothered

by functionality

 

in conversation

I miss 

the long pause

 

autumn morning

I scrape

my frosted window

 

each morning

the pine tree

facing the wind

 

passing a field

of scattered turnips

laughing

 

floating

against the oak

this winter sun

 

Please feel free to comment. Best wishes. Karen

We are getting very good stuff on this forum suddenly! These are true haiku, Karen, and very strong. I love the first four to bits, and the pine tree facing the wind with patient endurance. I also like the idea of laughing turnips (!).

Nice Karen. I particularly love the last three - really lovely, and they all seem to have in common a curious sort of personification of the objects seen. Really effective!
