deepening autumn—
grasses among gold aspens
await the first snow

Spent

Having spent itself,
the wind settles in the grass
for a lengthy nap.

a puzzle in the grasses—

Richard Wright’s haiku about spring inspires me to write a new haiku about summer:

 

Spring begins shyly
With one hairpin of green grass
In a flower pot.

 
~~ ~~ ~~
 


Summer opens wide
with fragrant lilies blooming
in a painted pot.

Praise


 


Crickets chime your praise,
mower that no longer zings,
scissoring the grass.

ten thousand coins of pure gold
disguised as flowers

In lands of no grass,
where do the quail take cover?
Where do beetles hide?

autumn drawing near
