Birch tree shadows on new daylilies

Light and shadows

Grateful for our yard, some warmth

New green plants and the daylilies will bloom in summer.

Thought I would try and begin again with the camera. See what photos are given as I simply observe in the yard. Haiku photos.

Haiku Photos at Home

These are more photos from my archives to share again. As I type, I think of haiku. A smaller form – or space – can lead to new ideas.

I read a lot, sometimes aloud. Many authors. Then perhaps I am more likely to think of a better word for a small poem.

The news, and then I see a cardinal in the yard. Daffodils and daylilies are beginning to grow, the early beginnings of new green.

These photos include treasures from thrift stores. I call some of my photos HAIKU PHOTOS.

March poems

late afternoon sun
shines into my little
study longer
another Spring
is given

a new river of
poems begins to flow
as I grow older
still reading by natural light
late afternoon sun

new library books
and wandering home
on all the roads
fields, spring air, sky
first red-winged blackbird

old weathered trees
in afternoon sun
seem so peaceful
why worry about leaves
not just yet
the sun is longer
and maybe warmer
and the sky is blue
