Golden sun shines on
a field full of buttercups.
What a joyful sight.

Holiday Haiku 7


Hill snow

Snow on the high peaks.
Cold, the frost during the night.
Midday sun so warm.

Witness

Today the sun smiles
as if yesterday’s wind and rain
had never been.
Only puddles and soggy leaves
bear witness.

Vanished

A breeze breaks up the stillness,
the atmosphere is heavy and grey,
the late morning sun has vanished again
and rain is on the way.

Silvered

Silvered
by cloud
a feeble sun
tries to break through.
Defeated.

Complaints

Today the sun sulks
behind cloud cover,
tired of our complaints.
A brief respite from the heat,
but of the drought?
No end in sight.

Promised

Today started cool
and overcast
with promise of rain
in the forecast.
Possibly anywhere,
maybe not everywhere,
still some uncertainty.
Now the sun comes
and all hopes fast fade,
along with the shade.
Rain somewhere today,
but not here.

Draining

Hot,
the sun
on my skin,
draining all my energy.
Lethargic.

Golden

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

The Sun

The sun turns her face
behind grey clouds and weeps
to see the daffodils fade away.

White cherry blossom pom-poms
waving in the breeze call
her back to smile again.
