Eight Haiku for a Year of Days, another posey of haiku for the changing year, now that autumn skies and golden light begin to soften the edges of summer….

*
The dew departed;
But under the willow,
And in the lark’s voice….

*

Cattle grazing
On the sky.
Early morning lake.

*

Watching them swing
This way then that –
Small boats
On the breath of the tide.

*

Hot dust
Between my toes.
The empty fields.

*

Amongst the stubble
Drunken daddy-long-legs.
The silent sky.

*

Come in, come in,
Leaves of autumn,
The wind is cold!

*

Four day’s frost
Crunching underfoot.
Chattering jackdaws.

*

Stubble field.
One withered apple
On the old tree.

Six Haiku for Timeless Days

Rain running off
A horse’s flanks.
The longest day.

In an empty field.
Waiting, maybe.

———-

My old home
– memories
Where I left them.
