haiku some more

butterfly wing-prints
show way to water holes
earth stocks aplenty


a green grasshopper
camouflaged on a leaf
an artist's muse


fresh fallen flowers
decorate the walkway
no stopping seasons


january's a jester
resolutions you can't keep
nature laughs

* for Monday Poetry Train week#64
* Haiku: A Japanese poem composed of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables.

I think you did a great job capturing nature and life!

Andy Sewina said...

Yeah, life goes on, and on, and our plans often fall by the wayside.

Cool word pictures you have painted here.

Yeah haiku! These are lovely. Feels like a subtle progression through the seasons too. I like the last one--it's so me. Thank you for sharing these.
