Neighborhood Haiku

the afternoon sky
latticed and mirrored
still waters reflect

so familiar
this common stretch of the road
known, but ever new

Left by the roadside
and missing one spoke, I see.
Yet it spoke to me.

river caked with ice
no need to step with caution
just to watch it flow

up close I feel it move
this water floeing past me
on its way to Time

A child's wooden house
abandoned, left to rot there.
Every year more age.

shadows on shed wall
three trees converse in the sun,
overheard by none

in the nursing home
two old friends sit side by side
winter can't get in

creatures that take flight
get a birds' eye view of all,
choose to land or not.
