Around Me…

so much happening while I stay home, avoiding the Corona Virus! In the background, the news drones on while elsewhere the death toll rises.

 

August whirlwinds drift
above farmer’s black tilled fields
-distant church bells toll

Prairie birds don’t heed the sounds
they’re just like the clouds above

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 288 Smoulder / Subdued

fire

Wood smoulders and glows
as night time subdues the wind
-wolf cries for its’ home

Haiku/Senryu Challenge (12/02/19)

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 282 Haze / Sand

Alone in the haze
The loon’s night-call floats in air
-Sand sticks to my toes

Lapping waves and jumping frogs
Bits of sound, lakeside rhythm
