Haiku/Senryu 4/4/2019



As the springtime warms
the aggie and cat’s eye roll
on the playground grass


Just five inches down
a layer of frost remains
holding back the bulbs


two robin’s spring bath
splash water from garden pond
full of melted snow


On my neighbor’s porch
a plastic Easter lily
usurps Santa Claus


Little girls red boots
running from boys holding worms
-pure squealing delight

Spring (3/27/2019)

The warm wind pulls me
                        out into the springtime sun
                                                     looking for lilies
