Monday Morning #Haiku 170 & 171 — Squirrel

Ahead of herself,
grey squirrel in white apron
gathers winter food.

Scatterbrain squirrel
abandons cooked chicken egg
next to her dugout.

Monday Morning #Haiku 169 — Cake

Smell that fresh-baked cake;
inhale deep. Knife sinks slow,
jam oozes, crumbs tease.

Monday Morning #Haiku 167 & 168 — Grasshoppers

Summer sun burns blue
Grasshoppers take siesta
Too hot to chirrup
#
Dog swishes meadow
Grasshoppers activated
Their springs uncoil

Monday Morning #Haiku 166 — Petunias (02)

Good year no snails
Petunia profusion
Stripes dizzy the eye

Monday Morning #Haiku 165 — Hydrangea

Flowerheads gone potty
Flamboyant pink hydrangea
Roots plan mass breakout

Monday Morning #Haiku 164 — July Harvest

Bounty of Summer
Fresh fruit and vegetables
Await chef’s orders

Monday Morning #Haiku 162 & 163 — Scarlet Pimpernels

Scarlet pimpernels
Array of sun worshippers
Petals spread in joy

Scarlet pimpernels
Nondescript weeds on grey days
Petals closed in sulk

Monday Morning #Haiku 161 — Green (2)

Plethora of greens
Embrace the dryad in you
Breathe that verdancy

Monday Morning #Haiku 158-160 — Foxgloves & Bees

Bumblebee size bells
Buzzing instead of ringing
Musical foxgloves
*
Bees drift somnolent
Bindweed climbs up foxglove stems
Gardener unwinds
*
Bees cart pollen home
Empty tubular bell blooms
Become pixie hats

Monday Morning #Haiku 157 — Potter’s Pots

Yearly pilgrimage
Expedition to buy plants
A simple pleasure
