…enjoying summer 8

spotted white wings drift
with the summer wind – zig zag
a curious route

modifications
(haibun)

Adjustments. If it is misty put on a raincoat, take a different
Route. Stop and chat with the neighbors. Even the ones who
are moving out. Walk between the storm that has moved in
for about twenty-four hours. With the wind that knocks over
the same potted plant three times. And knocks off the green
tomato left on the vine on the last day of the month. I suppose
it is time to harvest the rest of the green tomatoes. And maybe
the last of the green peppers that were supposed to be yellow.

almost paced three miles
most of that indoors; due to
saturating rains

barely breathing
whisper wind; my voice
too far the relatives are…
silent – the earth hears

“Hear me, four quarters of the world – a relative I am!
Give me the strength to walk the soft earth,
A relative to all that is! Give me the eyes to see
and the strength to understand, that I may be like you.
With your power only can I face the winds.
Black Elk (1863-1950) Oglala Sioux holy man

Breeze?
(Elfje series)

Wind
To test
The strength of
The newly built robin’s
Nest

High
Up in
The Silver Maple
That I watched her
Build

From
The safety
Of my own
Nest – all my chicks;
Flown

March Mirth
(three 3,5,3 haiku series)

celebrate
the first day of spring
daffodils

swaying leaves
in March winds’ cool breath
might be snow…

to weigh down
lace petals that bow
to the sun

…turnover…

loud roaring wind in
this intermediate
turnover of time

limited sun rays –
horizontal pine needles
look less than normal

time for fish and bull
this intermediate
time of turnover
