January to February . . .

Haiku Art Site 2012 - 2018

January thaw . . .
letting go
of old heartaches

pink clouds
span the horizon
seagulls take flight
stretching to read
new books

mid-February light
on the evergreens
easy to imagine
their new growth
in spring

reading a new book
the fragrance
of fresh paper

“January thaw” was published in A Splash of Water: Haiku Society of America 2015Members’ Anthology, edited by Catherine J.S. Lee.  You can learn more about the HSA Members Anthology here, at their site.

always beauty

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

after the leaves fall
and the days grow short
holiday lights begin

small town main streets
and country roads

November skies and fields
have a stark and simple
beauty

when winter settles in
for a long time
after Christmas

the light in January
is already changed
from now
