HAIKU FOR ECOSYSTEMS

HAIKU FOR ECOSYSTEMS

Fancy the peepers

Leap-frogging in vernal pools

Short life, sweet singing!

–J.E.C.

Awful garbage left

For a Cause folks are bereft

Of love for themselves!

–J.E.C.

Fine people are we,

Who force others to comply

Practice we ignore!

–J.E.C.

Behold birds singing

Focussed on their nest building,

Preparing futures!

–Jonathan C.

Lions, tigers, bears

Don’t put on arrogant airs

They don’t play at God.

–Jonathan Caswell

Salamanders’ moon

Will you help them cross the road?

Salamander soup?

–J. E. Caswell

What is mankind worth?

Just the top of a food chain?

Love humankind first!

–Jonathan Caswell

FUR-BRAINED FELINES

FUR-BRAINED FELINES

You Tube compilations

Of cat concentrations…

Mirrors and jumps

And into bath dumps,

Expose tintinnabulations!

END-OF-DAY HAIKU

END-OF-DAY HAIKU

Forecast warm, sunny,

Workplace: energized hub-bub…

Hallways empty fast!

–Jonathan Caswell

TOPS UNCOVERED

TOPS UNCOVERED

Snow mountains cut to size

Down before our eyes…

A skillful backhoe

Does wonders in snow,

Excavation before a bush dies!

–Jonathan Caswell

SWEET SCENE

SWEET SCENE

Confectioner’s sugary frost,

Trees and bushes glossed…

Roads are wet–

No freezing yet–

A weather change these delights cost.

–Jonathan Caswell

HERBAL SIDE EFFECTS

HERBAL SIDE EFFECTS

Bilateral symmetries,

Typical to our species…

Imperfections spoil

Despite our toil,

Finding supplements that please.

Eager gentian root suitors

Tend to grow their own hooters

Like some meds.

That may turn heads

Prompting derisive hooters!

–Jonathan Caswell

BARK BEETLES

BARK BEETLES

Openness is a good thing,

In corporate dealings to swing…

Asian long-horn beetles

Use for toothpicks, needles,

The world is filled with chewing.

They cut down all the trees,

Pine, hemlock, all these…

The landscape’s denuded

Opened up is the view, it

Looks better, but we’ll feel every breeze!

–Jonathan Caswell
