A Snow of Dogwood petals

HAIKU

The soft white blanket

spread beneath my dogwood tree

cascading petals

INDIANA

Indiana – – land of long lazy streams,
Placid ponds, and undulating green hills.
Land of desires and land of fertile dreams.
Home of covered bridges and old grist mills;
Farmland stretching ahead for bountied miles.
A rich source for artistry, poems and themes,
With nature shamelessly plying her wiles .
Indiana, your magic can’t be wrong —
My heart sings of your beauty in your song

Tumbleweed cavorts

along the roads and highways

windy Wyoming

And then it snows!

HAIKU

Pine needle carpets

embrace the cold forest floor

before the first snow

Leaves

HAIKU

Leaves torched with colors

of flaming scarlet and gold

wear frosty white wraps

Whoops!

WINTER WOE

Today it’s very cold outside
Drippy nose
Frozen toes
Weather’s right for a nice sled ride
Cough and wheeze
Great big sneeze
Snow-fun beckoned, and so I tried
Slipped and fell
Painful yell
Bruised my body and my pride
Home in bed
Bandaged head
Tomorrow I will stay inside

November

WINTER CURSE

When harvest days are over
And leaves have left the trees
November blows her cold breath
And we all cough and wheeze
