Monday Morning #Haiku 192 — Bird Truce

Jackdaws and magpies
Annual Branch Meeting starts
Armistice short-lived

Monday Morning #Haiku 188 — Bud

One daffodil bud
Solitary winter scout
Is it safe to bloom?

Monday Morning #Haiku 186 — Mulch

Woodland winter damp
That aroma of leaf mulch
Rich nature unraked

Monday Morning #Haiku 183, 184 & 185 — January

January rain,
shimmering pathways, blank skies,
and a lone walker.
#
January wind,
bending trees, lashing wetness,
and a happy dog.
#
January days,
sleeping snails, stirring shoots,
and a hoe at rest.

Monday Morning #Haiku 182 — Hydrangea (02)

Shelter for new buds:
dried hydrangea flowerheads
shield against frost.

Monday Morning #Haiku 180 — Sunrise (02)

December sunrise
Nature’s answer to Christmas
Heavenly bauble

Monday Morning #Haiku 142 — Solid White

chalk-and-ice-03

Hard to tell apart
chalk rocks mixed with blocks of ice…
winter assortment.

Monday Morning #Haiku 133 & 134 — Unwhite Christmas

mahonia

december-geraniums

December in bloom,
kissed by winds from the Azores:
Jack Frost in exile.

Father Christmas wilts
and casts his clothes from the sleigh:
yearns for good old days.

cyclamen

Monday Morning #Haiku 94 — Hibernating Snail

hibernating snail

Fed by detritus,
new leaves spring forth undeterred.
Snails still asleep.

Monday Morning #Haiku 93 — Winter Tree

Tangled Branches

 Tangle of branches
Medlar pear tree stands naked
Shouts asymmetry
