Sound - Haiku


trilling spring peepers
once silent in rivers mud,
keep pace with heart beats

a Ladybug tiptoes
across warm earth now nourished,
sprigs hear her footsteps

skeletons of leaves
tumble over the garden,
their lives echoing

Follow the sounds to Haiku Horizons

  1. Loved the story of life through sounds Cheryl:) imagining the sight of ladybird tiptoeing made me smile. The dry leaves left me feeling haunted and alone.

  8. I always learn a little about Haiku whenever I visit and read throough a few of your posts.
    I hope you enjoyed the first Gardener's World shows. Why can't we have a Canadian or American show like this?
