Short Poems: June 2021

Easter And Spring Poetry

long June days
ferns grow tall
in afternoon sun

June study window
shadows of leaves
on leaves

reading a new
library book
this year’s leaves
in today’s sun

plants and flowers
grow in gardens
perhaps I often say
“their best year so far”

Give us this day our daily bread.

clouds and yet
enough light
to filla jam jar
with the last
of the carnations

Spring Haiku

Haiku Art Site

morning stillness
forget-me-nots grow
among daylily plants

many Springs
yellow primroses
near an old tree

hosta grow again
around the ash tree stump –
the tree that fell in 2018

day grows more clear
primroses grow past
the flower garden

rain today
red geraniums
by grey windows

work in the kitchen
red tulip and new ferns
by the cedar fence

new leaves
on the birch tree
study window in Spring

small flowers
near the kitchen windows
first hummingbird
