Change

first chirps of twilight

as day lingers into night –

spring rounds the corner

Grace

autumn slips away

marred by lush flights of fancy

with no path to grace

A Senryu for Ronovan Writes Haiku where the prompt words are Grace & Slip. To participate or to read other entries go here :

Crippling Gray

lay me down to heal

till this crippling gray stills –

a regard for spring

sparks first tweet from window sills

no more will this sting endure

Ronovan Writes where the prompt words are “First & Heal”

For Tanka Tuesday over at Colleens where the prompt is synonyms to Imagine & Regard. I used Spark & Regard.

Maple

the tall maple is a shimmering yellow

the deep crunch beneath my feet

sounds mournful still

its twin to the left

was being gnawed at by rot

and had to be removed

since then I haven’t had the heart

to poach its sticky syrup

I will never forget the gasp escaping the earth

as huge sections of the trunk was felled

the house shook
