Fog Haiku

This haiku was inspired by a photo taken by my good friend Bill Holland.

Fog is misconstrued

Some call fog smog and it’s not

Only Similar

 

Smog is pollution

Fog, natures droplets in air

A big difference

 

Smog can be eerie

Mysteriously unknown

What is out of view

The Eagle Haiku

stone eagle

Watching for his meal

He sits high upon his perch

Ready to take flight

 

This majestic bird

Has a wingspan of eight feet

Powerfully fast

 

Lives up to twenty

A natural carnivore

Can easily swim

Snowflake Haiku

snowflakes

The life of a snowflake was written for December 2019 Writing Prompts.

 

Gently falling down

Melting as they hit the ground

A snowflake no more

 

Whipping all around

Gathering on the ground

Cold Blanket surrounds

 

Playing in the snow

Catch a snowflake on your tongue

Tingling as it goes

I heard a sound

I looked around

Guess what I found

Yes, a hound

Sitting proudly upon a mound

I sat beside him on the ground

Wandering, … sun beating down

Oasis, best water

Piggly Wiggly learned how to swim

He worked out every day at the gym

Until one day when he broke a limb

I nurtured the bird

Until it could fly again

Then back to nature

Fallen Leaves

This silly poem was written for Crimson’s Creative Challenge #52.

ccc#52

Skipping through the woods

Avoiding all the leaves they could

Not wanting to hurt any

and let me tell you … there were many

Stopping every now and then

To pick the pretty ones to defend

Carefully put them into a book

not wanting them to crook

Taking them all back to their mothers

Perhaps one would use them to recover

Recover what? you ask

Silly me, their facemasks

Spookiness prevails

Goblins, ghosts, witches come out

Creepy yet tasty
