Overcast and showery skies
give way to evening sunshine,
but still the strong wind blows.

Another Day

A cold, drying wind.
Another day without rain.
I water the plants.

Spring Emerges

And still the rain comes down,
now with threats of sleet and snow.
Strong winds bluster still and blow,
while Spring emerges all around.

Chill Wind

Mild and sunny,
a chill wind blows.

Holiday Tanka 1

Through the pine forest
the wind swirls, dancing, singing
her own wild music.
The trees sway to the rhythm
of the ancient earthly song.


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


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.


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:

The marina
comes to life.
Calm waters belie increased

twittering, flittering
around the boats,
among the rigging, playing

a breath
of wind, barely
a ripple disturbs the

wet with
overnight dew. Drying
sun beams down, set

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