Haiku (Photo credit: lux2night)

Seasons come and seasons go: isn’t that the old song? Today’s writing prompt for the month centers on Seasons. Choose a season, use that for your title, write a poem about it; that was the prompt.

I can do that. That’s a simple fix for my poetry habit. Haiku is the answer for days when time is running in short supply. I admit, though, that at least one of these is a bit irreverent. Can you pick out the one(s)?



Popcorn ball flakes sail,

With winds howling for fear’s sake,

Drifting to bring peace.



Seeds’ green heads waver,

Nodding to sky in joy,

Leaving Dark for Light.



Daisies keep cow friends

Company on sunshine days,

Giving selves as food.



Squirrels hurry on,

Gathering winter’s food choice,

Quarrel over safes.


I may take another crack at it late this afternoon, so stay tuned for developing events. Take care, all. Enjoy yourselves. Tell your friends to stop by. They’re not obligated to sign a contract or anything. TTFN
