Corner

Despite the sunshine
chill wind blows round the corner.
I pull my coat tight.

Witness

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

Dismal Day

Dull and dismal day.
Grey clouds chased by wind and rain.
Postman brings bad news.

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.

Down At The Boat

An Elfje sequence:

Morning.
The marina
comes to life.
Calm waters belie increased
activity.

Martins
twittering, flittering
around the boats,
among the rigging, playing
catch.

Hardly
a breath
of wind, barely
a ripple disturbs the
water.

Decks
wet with
overnight dew. Drying
sun beams down, set
fair.

This Elfje Sequence has also been posted today on ‘Simply Elfje’ here.

Blow Wind, Blow

Blow wind, blow,
blow the clouds along,
sweep away the rain showers,
bring sunshine and birdsong.

Options

Today the day just can’t decide
what it wants to do.
Cloud, drizzle, wind or sun?
Checking all the options!

In Their Element

Riding
the wind,
silently soaring, swooping
effortlessly, in their element.
Seagulls.

Downhill

Downhill
at speed
on my bicycle,
the wind behind me.
Elation.

Scuttle and Swirl

Residue of Autumn’s fallen leaves
scuttle like rats along the road
at the behest of the gusting wind,
or swirl up in the air
like flocks of small birds
taking flight.
