Frozen Breath

Snow falls silently
Painting a blanket of white
Breath can now be seen

Season of Peace

Shall not prevail this season

Poetry is like a river
Always changing currents
Soft, wild, always demanding attention. 

October sun fading  
Blowing thru golden hair
Windswept streaks on a face.

Never a green leaf whispers
As the sweet smelling flowers drift
Deep into the heart of summer.

I saw spring today
Was an awesome sight
Heaven was open to me.

Seasonal Woes


buds opening now
dewdrops sparkle on the grass
lawnmower wont start

picnic by the pond
ducks provide entertainment
darn mosquito bite

pumpkin patch visits
mild evenings on the porch
back to school jitters


snuggle in warm coats
prepare for Santa's visit
empty pocket book

Just for fun....

Four Seasons of Love

summer love so real
feeling alive in your arms
very hot we got
autumn hearts afire
nature treks took together
loving crisp weather
winter romance fun
snuggling under covers
blissfully in love
springtime love will bloom
our bodies keeping rhythm
seasonal pulses

seasonal senryu

Three Humorous Senryu 

If winter landscape 
Had snow that was black as coal 
It would still be cold 

If sunlight was green 
Shining on crimson nature 
It would still be hot. 

If rain was yellow 
Running like horse piss in streets 
It would still be wet.

Eight Months of Heat

Two months past solstice
Subtropical climate sears
Just open the door

Step into oven
Midday sun chars skin and lawns
Sweat flows so freely

Water use rises
AC gives welcome relief
Scalding sand on beach

Take frequent showers
Florida lifestyle envied
Northerners don’t know

Blazing heat last months
Visits to the Sunshine State
Best planned in winter

Heat hotter than breath.
Gasps squelched while sweat tickles skin,
Flop under the fan.
