arthritic creaking—
old windmill’s groaning at dusk—
up jumps jackrabbit

  1. Rheumy with age, frightens jackrabbit away!! 🙂

  2. Wonderful. It reminded me of my Grandmothers farm. Well done.


  3. Happy! This windmill still has its purpose! And the jumping jackrabbit energizes! This photo is pretty, almost as if a storm were threatening…

  4. Love the picture and haiku!

  5. Great shot! I love windmills.

  6. Yes, I felt a storm on the horizon with your photograph too.. Maybe its winds can make the arthritic creaking go smoother and faster 🙂

  7. My favorite windmill. I must of taken hundreds of photo of it, over the years.

  8. Oh, I miss Santa Rosa so much. Love the rural look to this one.
