harvest moon - haiku

glowing in twilight,

tree frogs and crickets chorus,

heralds harvest moon

evening feast - haiku


bird feeder topped up

flock of nuthatches descends

for evening feast


squirrels hang in a row

upside down and right side up

for evening feast


sparrows flutter in

weaving their way through the growth

for evening feast


sharp call of blue jays

invites their kin of cardinals

for evening feast


twilight in the east

causes life to seek their nests

evening feast ends...

golden

 air is clear and cool

as I relax at the Pond

twinkle lights strung along posts

emanate golden glow casting shadows


golden nectar chills in the goblet

while my body relaxes upon wicker

tis a night of wonderful dreams

of fae, frogs and toads, and squirrels


the chaise draws me in, calling me,

come rest awhile golden lass

the quarter moon shining brightly

will lull you asleep, I abide

Every home needs a colourful welcome


 

silence

 A few days off from being everything

and being so important to smooth running.

I informed the owner I won’t return

until my own mental health heals.

Phone has been silent ever since.
