Golden

Golden buttercups,
shining like miniature suns;
bright spots in my lawn.

Returning

A few days away
and cherry blossom gone,
but look — cherries form.

Returning
I refill
the bird feeders.
Rare visitor flies in.
Jackdaw.

Fragrances

Heady fragrances;
new-mown grass and oil seed rape.
Sneezing – A-ti-shoo!

Bread

Domesticity
beckons on a dismal day —
smell of baking bread.

Icy Wind

An icy wind howls
and threatens to freeze my bones.
Pale sunshine brings hope.

I have been down at our boat since last Saturday, arriving there in snow and freezing conditions. There is always an unreliable Internet connection in the marina but this time it was worse than usual and I haven’t been able to get connected since Sunday. I wrote the above intending to post it on Wednesday. We arrived back home yesterday evening so I am sharing it now even though, thankfully, the snow has gone, the wind has dropped and it is a bit warmer once more.

Undecided

White flakes softly fall,
sudden flurries come and go,
seem undecided.

I wrote this Haiku earlier this week but as I had other things to post then I am sharing it today. Since I wrote it the snow finally decided it was going to fall more continuously and settle. There is also a bitingly cold wind.

Hints

Snowdrop buds appear,
hints of beauty yet to come.
Winter darkness fades.

Three Seasons

Three season’s weather
in the space of half a day.
Sun, wind, rain and hail.

Weather

Cold and wet weather.
What has happened to summer?
Still early August!

Cherries

Tree full of cherries
stripped bare while I was away —
birds opportune feast!
