Turtle - a nature haiku





peek-a-boo turtle

floats near surface

breathes

down periscope

dive, dive, dive

Tree 4 - a nature haiku




orange blooms burst out
Geiger tree flower clusters
hummingbird feeders

Once upon a time I worked for a company who needed to re-do their landscaping. These Florida natural trees were chosen to enhance the grounds. They put out some very bright orange flowers with a nice shape.

Later the flowers would develop into white fruit which fell and littered the grounds everywhere. Not so nice but who knew.

I liked the flowers so I took a photo and wrote the above haiku.

 ps: The Geiger tree is supposedly a native of the Keys (like in Key West).

Driving 2 - an urban haiku




mist falls, obscures all,

invisible cars rush by,

foggy morning scare


Went out the other morning when this car without the lights on went by. I didn't see the car until it zipped by me. The fog was so thick it was hard to see cars with headlights on, they were just a light blur coming down the road. No lights equaled no view.

Driving – an urban haiku





speeding down the lanes

change – left to right, right to left

auto remodel



Inspired by watching this guy in an SUV zip by us, weaving his way past the cars in the road. A few miles later he was on the side of the road with his car a bit smashed up. Seems he went to far to the right while cutting across the lanes and ended up smacking into a road side fence. Poor car!
