spring haiku 2


early spring
but not too cold
to sunbathe

I saw a photo earlier this month
of the first mourning cloak to be
spotted this year at
the botanical garden over
on the coast of Maine
when I lived by the woods,
I went looking every April
for them
the earliest I ever found one
was April 8th

spring haiku 1

 the willow
on the pond’s edge
a spring glow

early spring
the dogwood’s red limbs
reach up

three days rain
in the wet grass
grackles shine

ice out
next day

winter haiku 4

a late winter sunset
lights up windows and
an old memory 

soft maple brooms
sweep the cold winter sky
the March wind

winter haiku 3

 a red sunrise
announces the coming

snow falls on 
a restless ocean

this morning
snow falls gently
erasing mouse tracks

a  fierce wind
alters the snowscape
hills and valleys

winter haiku 2


snow, fast and furious
the unexpected beauty
of an afternoon squall

a cold wind
paints serpentine patterns
snow dust

morning snow showers
stayed for supper~
offshore storm

observations of snow so far this winter!

leaves early

happy new beginnings to all

Summer haiku 2

my neighbor's garden
a sneaky mockingbird steals
cherry tomatoes

two more

August heat
and the second wave of
the small maple tree
is bursting with goldfinches 
red leaves coming soon

summer haiku 1

late afternoon light
strikes the garden's stone border
a study in earth tones

spring haiku 3

spring in the mountains
at the edge of the snow
azaleas bloom

thanks to all the
 tough and hardy people
working in the background
 in this pandemic

The masks below were made
by my friend Cecile
her artistic ability shows up

spring haiku ~ iris

at just the moment 
early morning light strikes dew
a shimmering world

When I lived in the country, I used
to be out in my back field in the very early morning
enjoying nature, and taking photos.
I am posting a flower today,
even though it is snowing 
in parts of the state because
it is

 time springs forward
a glorious sunrise
no crows

the stormy day ends
a muted sunset and
the first geese

Thursday, February 6, 2020

just photos today

we finally had a bright day
after four dark and dreary days
my spirits soared
even better than 
a day of sunshine
a flock of bluebirds
visited in the afternoon

winter haiku~ blue

bright morning light
falls on yesterday's storm
the wind picks up

deer tracks
lead to the pond
winter fodder

haiku ~ winter white

every now and then, 
I come across and old photo
and I am there again

this old photograph,
I still recall the silence
of the falling snow

winter haiku the past

haiku from my old home

my garden sleeps
the old tower
keeps watch

this cold winter day
the gnarled old apple tree
promises blossoms

the beauty of
a bird in the air
