#Haibun: Spring

My Garden of Wildflowers
Mesa, AZ

Winter is different here in the desert southwest. While others up north have snow and more snow, we have sunshine days with a few freezing nights to keep us humble. Last night was one of those nights.

I awaken to the garden fountain frozen and crusted with ice, yet it still labors to move the water. The birds, hungry from a long night of cold temperatures are having a feeding frenzy at the feeders. Scattered around the fountain edge are bodies of dead bees. They drink from this fountain daily, but the cold snap must have surprised them.

I’m sad for the bees, but there is life in the garden, for a garden is a constant cycle of life, death, and rebirth.

spring’s eternal hope
from tiny seeds to blossoms
wildflowers blooming

#Haiku: Unconditional Love

“All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed.

For after all, he was only human. He wasn’t a dog.” 

― Charles M. Schulz

She

She is haunting music
lilting melody of a summer night
and soft whispering gossamer wings
of fragile butterflies in flight~

She is a night blooming rose
whose fragrance dances on sultry air
captivating him with her
mysterious essence of myrrh~

She is the dark temptress
with fiery wild tresses
soothing his soul with her caresses.

Fresh as a Summer Rose

As your lips impose a kiss as fresh as a summer rose
My heart does leap and rejoice in a lilting prose
And I will never forsake the memories
wrapped in your arms, sweet reveries
dreaming together as one
loving from sun to sun.
