Field of Strange Surprises


In a field of strange surprises, one chipped cup appears;
Yellow roses near the lip have faded with the years.
 
A clothesline pinned with tables, along with rusty tools,
Earns heaps of raw derision from mouths of Sunday fools.
 
They say the world is flooding and seas are black with ink.
But who knows what the truth is, and who knows what to think?
 
The end of time’s upon us, and dust coats every shelf.
But what’s the use of cleaning? Just leave that to the elf.

A small wooden bridge—
I cross into a garden
where deep secrets grow.

Spring


1
First great change of spring—
the coronavirus spreads
all over the world.
 
2
On the patio
six feet away from my friend
we share springtime tea.
 
3
first nibble of spring—
a handful of raw almonds
with my morning tea
 
4
Through a small window
I watch the first spring robins
foraging for worms.
 
5
First possum of spring—
I’m inclined to think he’s dead
till his tail twitches.
 
6
Spring sneaks through my yard—
the first blossom’s opening
brings me to my knees.

A long loneliness
settles on the village streets—
coronavirus.

Five Haiku: Spring Firsts


1
Spring’s first bitterness—
the church on top of the hill
is consumed by fire.
 
2
First small joy of spring—
at the bike store a young boy
gets a bargain price.
 
3
First Sunday of spring—
a worn, but polished, church bell
rings out loud and clear.
 
4
Spring’s first disaster—
the smoke-drenched walls of the bar
tell a fiery tale.
 
5
Spring’s first conundrum—
stand below the fire station,
tell me what you see.
