2020 Haiku by Ellen Grace Olinger

new year sunrise
light fills
the red poinsettia

January 1, 2020

new day
in my older life
sun on evergreens

January 8, 2020

March sunrise
shadows of trees
on cedar garage

March 4, 2020

raindrops
robin in a daylily
garden

April 23, 2020

after rain
the beautiful earth
and gardens grow

April 23, 2020

sunrise stillness
branches and clouds
light

April 27, 2020

grey sky
mourning dove
on a birch tree branch

time with the Psalms
a dove on the branch
pictures a poem

April 28, 2020

early May
robin visits
the cedar tree

warm Saturday
in early May
windows open

May 2, 2020

May garden
daffodils bloom
through the night

May 8, 2020

Sunday afternoon
I know the time
by the light

June 1, 2020

plant with new growth
fills with light
grows towards the light

June 3, 2020

all that has happened
since the last time they bloomed
lilacs

both joy and grief
over years of lilacs
hope for many more
