Third Attempt at Haiku

 

Crow’s Nest

Handicapped Parking

Crow lands to take his command 

Captain Crow on deck



Savings Time

In wintertime snowplows

Scrape hard to bank all the snow

Snow saved in snow banks



Upside Down Wonder

Eye records image

Upside down at back of eye

Why don’t I fall down?



Age isn’t Just a Number

Soon I turn eighty

Age slowly slowly shrinks me

Gravity’s impress



Quicksilver

 Avoiding my grasp

Springing clear and beading fast

Nascent thought bounces



What Calls?

Wake to urgency

Ringing ... calling ... urgency

Please - leave a message?



Jack the Giant Killer

Should Jack eat those beans

Will he feel a giant dread?

Will those beans stalk him?



Mute-tation

Often I lose words

Dumbed down, made mute by love

 New life can do that



Sun Strokes

The sun beats down strong

The sound of its heat too loud

Thudding in my ears



Springtime Promises

Stands by her new bed

Hipshot, very well content 

Flower-seeded rows
