In Clover

The design on the fern fronds gets me wondering about how it all began. Who, or what, set the world into motion?  A young bunny hops out of the herb garden. There must be a billion white flowers in my lawn.

Failed Haiku: A Journal of English Senryu

September 2020

Psalm 92:2

A blanket of gold leaves covers the lawn today. The morning light glitters in the few left on the cherry tree. We still have not had a hard frost and purple sage continues to bloom. Almost everything else is gone to seed and the birds are eating well. A comfort to have their company. A chill comes through the window. If autumn is a symbol of our inevitable demise, it is a beautiful one. Each year, I am a bit less afraid. Maybe I am going home.
