AUTUMN HAIKU HERDING

AUTUMN HAIKU HERDING

Fall plantings are in,

Cabbages, hardy mums bloom…

Autumn colors glow!

Warm days–cooler nights

Ushering those southward flights…

Noisily birds fly.

Harvest time each year,

Dresses and skirts lower hems…

Less yield for the men!

Snow birds fly or drive,

Commuting to stay alive…

Rubber tires fly!

Children play in leaves,

Hot chocolate sales go up…

Deserted beaches!

Eggs and produce come

Veggies come from foreign lands…

Locally–now!

HONORARY MOMMA

HONORARY MOMMA!

At ninety years’ old

Aunt Myrt makes the scene…

Being salt and light

Where Diana has been.

When times were rough

In Diana’s life…

You welcomed her into

Your home to be safe.

Our favorite Aunt,

For Diana and me…

You’ve always been kind

Serving Eternity.

We love and cherish

Your mothering ways…

The family members

Whose spirits you;ve raised!

Taking care of your Mom,

Elmer’s, Di’s too…

Describing God-Love

We always think “You”!

Your nintieth birthday:

We all will shout

Of Diana’s three Mothers,

You are cherished–NO DOUBT!!!!
