Haiku: Four Seasons in the Garden

Updated on July 31, 2016

Tree boughs and blue sky

Reflected in my birdbath

An abstract painting!

_______

Spring


Strawberries tempt me

With slow-ripening promise.

Too sour today.

Summer



Succulent iceplant

Blankets the crumbling hillside.

A lizard seeks shade.

Fall



Jewel-toned drifts of leaves

settle at my feet in farewell.

Summer fades away.

_______

Winter


Vivid orange poppies.

Hot enough to melt the snow.

My wishful thinking!

      Perfect poetic pronouncements...The opening gambits closed with the 3rd line in each...Yummy haiku, very disciplined, evocative, and creative...reflections in your birdbath are a simple and free gift from nature...Thank you for these little haiku treats...I devoured them whole...Larry

      Hi Mike,

      Thank you for visiting and leaving such a nice comment! I hope you enjoy my other nature photography from both inside and outside my garden. Summer is usually too hot and dry here for nice displays, but I will have more coming soon. :)
