WARM WEATHER HAIKU

WARM WEATHER HAIKU

Air conditioners

Softly flowing night time wind…

Cool enough, without.

Parking in the shade,

Handicapped zone is filled up…

Worth the extra walk.

Wild families grow,

No fishercats seen this year…

The woods hide many lives.

Flowers open wide,

Bees work among the petals…

Aroma lures all.

WELL-FED TURKEY ENCOUNTER

A WELL-FED TURKEY ENCOUNTER

 

On a Northbridge* back street,

What would I find

But a wild turkey

Stopping to dine…

Upon a lawn

Manicured right,

Then ambled off

Until out of sight…

Of the slam of a door

He had no need to dread,

The wood was his shelter

After being well-fed!
