Snooze Repose

Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge #142 – Spring/Fresh

In spring garden gnomes
Rise above last winter’s frost
Fresh faced in the light

Dew stained face found as he was
Slumber struck snoozing repose

Generations

Dandelion

Last night I received word that a cousin had died and I grieved for a loss of a life. But then I remembered the family he left and I knew his was a life well spent.

Dandelions wait
For a breeze and a moment
Knowing winds will blow

Beauty lives in that instant
One puff and new lives take flight

Those Secrets Unread

Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge #138 – Secret/Burn

I burned them unread
Held secret letters from him
Still tied in silk threads

Those final wishes of hers
Paper memories secured

I Like To Sweat

Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge #137 – heat/sweat

I prefer the heat-
And when I sweat when it’s hot
That’s what beer is for
