new creative force was born  

named ..."haiku"  


May 29, 2020 anniversary of when I

wrote my first haiku poem.

The next day I found THE DAILY HAIKU on Facebook Groups.

Life changing!

Being Me

feeling content  
being with spring flowers  

after morning rain  



naughty again  

vase shopping ... lilac snipping  

being me

Garden Artistry


garden artistry  

before rainy days arrive  




lilacs surround  

wafting the sweetest smells  

where I stand

Morning Serenade


morning serenade  

heard throughout the garden  

soothes the soul  

til another voice is heard  

cat's meow 

* * * * *

nature's perfume
wafts the sweetest scents
from each garden

First Birdsong


silent night  

garden slumbers in darkness  

til first birdsong  



first birdsong  

breaks peace and quiet  

wake-up call
