early June morning

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

early June morning
pelicans fly over the water
a deer walks through the yard

new carnations
in an old glass vase
by the window

poinsettia and lily plants
placed by the back patio door
only yesterday
and still in the house

new green
on evergreen branches
an image loved for years
the small new growth

and lilacs bloom

Four Haiku

how small the song
of an unknown bird
quiet memories

sunrise
daffodils bowed by rain
recover

after a warm day
and worth the wait
forsythia

I wonder
what today’s poem may be
lilacs in the wind
