A Mid-Autumn Scene

swirls of clouds trim sky
leaves twirl as wind passes by . . .
a squirrel stands still

A squirrel that is
                                          recumbent on the road, is
                                                            destined to road-kill.

Pace, G

3 Spring Haiku

Pill bugs wet with dew
as crawling gray domes mirror
green turf, salmon sun.

Copter seeds whirling,
a squirrel chases paper
treasure for her nest.

Young cat mock-tweeting,
wily sparrows unheeding,
paws press on the screen.

flipping among tree branches—

Early Morning Frost

early morning frost—
a squirrel empties fat cheeks
inside the old log

a flutter of wings
at Sol’s dawning—
damp bare branches

What Does the Fox Say

No fox is hungrier
than the one hiding to catch
a squirrel so small.

The fox hasn't eaten
in days and her stomach growls,
she watches every move.  

The poor squirrel is
unaware of the fox's intent,
and just ignores her.

The fox moves forward,
takes off as to get her meal:

Loss of a Tom Cat Friend and Defender of the Bluebird Box

Squirrel plays and shakes
 a fist atop the bluebird box....
twelve round stones

Blue feathers strown
empty nesting box today...
old man Tom rest

Slice of Life

pepperoni red
          flapping in a naked tree 

            determined squirrel 


(I was looking for a haiku when caught my eye, out the window across the street from me was this squirrel stuffing a whole pizza slice into the branches at the top of a tree.)

Three February Haiku


squirrels hiding nuts
on this bright and shining day
that ingrained wisdom

kitty up a tree
squirrel chatters noisily
blue jay stealing nuts

trees like sentinels
stark against the winter sky
life below goes on
