tension builds, lightning

sun shines, heat ends stay

Bluejay - a nature haiku




Bluejay family gorges on seeds in back yard



loudmouth raucous bird

descendant of dinosaurs

eats seeds of life feast


If you want to hear a bluejay call here is a link which highlights their main call: Bluejay Call. .

Here is a definition of "raucous": making or constituting a disturbingly harsh & loud noise.
This makes more sense once you listen to the bluejay call.

Spaceship Earth - a life haiku









Life turns with the world,

Spinning around, day and night,

Bike ride thru deep space

Man - a life haiku



age defiant fool

runs, jumps, teenage game player

sore muscles protest


Of course, this is only for those who actually get out and do physical activity instead of hankering down in front of the television, tablet, computer or smart phone.

Recycled - a life haiku





life march begins - birth

physical collapse - decay

fertilized earth - growth


The cycle of life throughout the ages. Unavoidable (at present). Prepare and be happy. Be useful - return your body (or ashes) to Mother Earth and help a plant/tree grow.

Heron - a nature haiku



sentinel stands still

sudden movement activates

swift strike, breakfast caught

Inspired by a Great Blue Heron who stood hunting on the bank of the ditch behind my home which recently filled with water due to copious amounts of rain.
