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.



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.


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


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

Beech Tree

The staunch old beech tree
grown too big, too near the house.
Sad to see it go.


Curled up by the fire
feeling sorry for myself,
nursing my cold.


Seasons slowly change.
Trees peppered with new colours —
fiery reds and golds.


Sad and happy day.
Memories of an old friend
at his funeral.

RIP Alex


Hiatus in time.
Wondering which way to turn,
leaves blow in the breeze.
