Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 278 Vapor / Howl

Grey twilight vapors
drift on twisted woodland trails
-Black howls at night

Anxious souls hunt for refuge
Pounding hearts seek night’s cover

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 277 River / Path

Constable, John; Flatford Lock, A Path by a River

Flatford Lock, A Path by a River, ca. 1810-1812. John Constable – Royal Academy of Art

A melodic path
twists and turns above the flow
-River’s brave descant

Journey’s harmonic partner
following life’s ancient course

Season’s Best

As I begin the work of putting the vegetable garden to bed, I found one last red tomato hidden in the vines. While I have gathered dozens of Big Boys, Celebrities and Big Beef Tomatoes already this fall, this bonus straggler will be featured in my lunch today, for nothing tastes better than a tomato freshly picked from the garden.

The last tomato
clinging to a wilted vine
is season’s best pick

Writing

Sometimes a picture stays with me, nudging my soul; and as I try to find the perfect words, each revision continually falls short. Perhaps that’s what poetry is for me – An unending search to assign meaning to life’s unique events

Here is yet another attempt to capture a small moment

Autumn’s sweetest rose
touched by flames of fall fire
-and a bit of frost
