Wisconsin Haiku for the Seasons

how small the song
of an unknown bird
quiet memories

*

praying the Psalms
old rose bush leans
against evergreens

*

lake and sky
the same color
Autumn Equinox

*

late November
sun fills a glass
for a time

Time Of Singing, Fall 2013

*

staying with the light
I read in different corners
of the house

*

how still
the winter landscape
I whisper the Psalms

*

sunrise
daffodils bowed by rain
recover

*

I wonder
what today’s poem may be
lilacs in the wind

*
