tree leaves are now full
all our fear of frost has passed
time for spring planting

2024-06-09

 
 
 

 

 
 
 

 

 
 
 

 

northern lights flicker,
solar storms far away,
spring surprise this year

2024-05-12

northeasterly wind,
it's cloudy and there's some rain.
New England springtime.

2024-05-19

'till summer solstice,
must wake earlier daily
to beat the sunrise

2024-05-26

the sun, yet to rise,
will be radiant today.
so June forecasts say

2024-06-02

fantasy exists
in the imagination
of all spring dreamers

2024-04-07

quiet, empty streets
prepare for runners and crowd:
Marathon Monday

2024-04-14

sparrows in the spring
gather twigs and dry grass bits,
building summer homes

2024-04-28

revolutions turn
some dates into holidays,
in all the seasons

2024-05-05

daylight saving struck
all our clocks overnight, bah.
saving sleep...better

2024-03-10

in the hospital,
window view only of sky,
no sense of seasons

2024-03-17

with March winding down,
feels more like January
this sunny morning

2024-03-24

Easterly winds blow
today of all days in spring
arise; celebrate

2024-03-31

nature slips summer
into the midst of winter
sixty was the high

2024-02-11

without regard to
the date on the calendar
thin snow on the ground

2024-02-18

winter barely stays
the way we remember it
into March these days

2024-02-25

advanced this season
is the feel of spring weather
well before its time

2024-03-03

our grandchild's visit
for the college winter break
over way too soon

2024-01-14

snow, fall, that is all
It took to hobble me, here,
on a frigid morn.

2024-01-21

weather advances,
steadily approaching here
with some winter snow

2024-01-28

Sunday shines sunny,
without much warmth to offer
for a winter's day

2024-02-04

shrouded sun today
with some winter rain again.
snow, just a dream

2023-12-17

busy urgent care
sat two hours in a blue mask
with coughing strangers

2023-12-24

the eve is here,
as dawn breaks on the last day
of the current year

2023-12-31

a storm predicted,
delayed gratification
for those who love snow

2024-01-07

furnace fan clanking
to overcome outside temp.,
a cold winter freeze

2023-11-19

waiting till it's late
lets the sun try its best to
warm a winter day

2023-11-26

three hours since rising
makes it seem like midday here
...dawns a winter day...

2023-12-03

foggy morning air
prepares me for wet and warm
early winter rain

2023-12-10

dark night, unbroken,
temperatures down to
signal fall’s advance

2023-10-22

warm spell is over
crunchy leaves cover the yard
halloween’s approach

2023-10-29

time, an illusion,
is best passed as if were true
an extra hour’s sleep?

2023-11-05

our clocks don’t agree.
theirs is into afternoon…
football from Frankfurt

023-11-12

was awake at three;
slept again beneath covers;
cool nights of autumn

2023-09-24

wash my spoons early
to ready myself for work
in any season

2023-10-01

sunshine and a breeze
follow cool fall rain as leaves
begin color change

2023-10-08

darker, still longer,
mornings come later each day
’till winter solstice

2023-10-15

too bright is the light.
I wake later than normal
to late summer sun.

2023-08-27

morning came on time,
but I did not know of it,
sleeping way too late.

2023-09-03

heavy cloud cover
obscures the late summer dawn
but we know it’s there

2023-09-10

before the noise of
morning, small things scurry home
’till another night

2023-09-17

flash of lightning gone,
dawn breaking clear, sunny and cool,
summer storm has passed

2023-07-30

trading heat for cold,
isn’t quite due in summer
but we hope will come

2023-08-06

light morning rainfall
keeps the lawns green in spite of
summer’s bright sunshine

2023-08-13

silence of sleep ends
as we become aware of
bird song in summer

2023-08-20

seeing summer’s haze
enhanced by northern fire’s blaze
chokes us up these days

2023-07-02

short summer shower
in a stall inside the house
foretells rain outside

2023-07-09

hot, humid summer,
thick air, reluctant to move
aside as I walk

2023-07-16

the ceiling fan spins,
pushing air over my damp skin,
cooling summer’s sweat.

2023-07-23

just a game rained out
nothing to be of concern
make it up later

2023-06-04

clear sky or almost
but haze from wildfires still there
dulling spring’s sunshine

2023-06-11

weather is fluid
sometimes that means it will rain–
summer games postponed

2023-06-18

a bright morning light
and the summer’s sounds and smells
greet me on this day

2023-06-25

sneaky shapes tiled with
imagined color pattern
shows synthetic spring

2023-05-07

whether the weather
cooperates or does not,
I will go outside.

2023-05-14

some measures of spring
are rain and then all the scents:
damp dirt, flower blooms

2023-05-21

sharp, shiny sunlight
cuts through the fog of my sleep
and I spring from bed

2023-05-28

morning words delayed
though sun rose as it should have
spring distractions ruled

2023-04-16

robins and raindrops
hop and patter on the lawn,
welcome signs of spring

2023-04-17 - International Haiku Day

enjoy watching bees
seek early spring blossoms as
practice for summer

2023-04-23

rain, drizzle and mist
are all forecast for today,
mud season for sure

2023-04-30

early, seeming late
daylight savings took an hour
from this March Sunday

2023-03-12

bright sun arising,
morning event repeating
in every season

2023-03-19

sunshine after rain
clear skies and drying wet lawns
greet us at the dawn

2023-03-26

a gibbous moon wanes
in the west as the sun starts
a clear spring morning

2023-04-09

coffee is cooling
while writing this little thing
but not really much

2023-02-12

after winter snow
before the advent of spring
endure mud season

2003-02-19

some late season snow
proves winter can still pay us
a flaky visit

2023-02-26

just cold, windy rain
on top of an inch of snow,
driveway quickly cleared

2023-03-05

the moon shines brightly,
quite low in the western sky,
just past being full

2023-01-08

with no great fanfare
dawn approaches silently
ending winter nights

2023-01-15

later morning rise
huddled under the covers
hiding from the chill

2023-01-22

deep cold snap is done
warm today, with cloud cover
odd winter goes on

2023-02-05

snow in the forecast
the temperature is cold
glad the furnace works

2022-12-11

a trip for donuts,
weekly Sunday ritual,
even in winter

2022-12-18

still start to the day
then raucous wrapping ripping.
"Could burn it for heat."

2022-12-25

it is way too warm
to snow in my neighborhood,
first day of the year

2023-01-01

thoughts swirl each morning
in each year's four seasons like
autumn leaves dropping

2022-11-13

dark starts to the days
along with dark endings, too
mark winter season

2022-11-20

blower motor's hum
pushes hot air through the ducts
chasing morning's chill

2022-11-27

smile in the morning
perhaps your outlook will make
a bright winter day

2022-12-04

no frost yet right here
it was almost cold enough
I expect it soon

2022-10-09

sunshine glints on dew
a sweater is in order
fallen leaves afoot

2022-10-16

spring steel tines work fine
but I like a bamboo rake
when clearing fall's leaves

2022-10-30

the next leaf that falls,
not the last of the season,
another to rake

2022-11-06

cooling coffee cups
happen faster in the fall
donuts still taste good

2022-09-11

clouds fly past the moon
on the way to somewhere else
making fall leaves quake

2022-09-18

sun then clouds today
with thunderstorms to come, too
some fall hail may fall

2022-09-25

darker longer here
moving towards winter solstice,
leaves begin to fall

2022-10-02

dew on the windshield
after comfortable night
surprise in August

2022-08-14

just touching ninety
is again the day's forecast
sunny, dry...dry...dry!

2022-08-21

a thin strip of dawn
edging a cloud covering
becomes summer bright

2022-08-28

cool air and cloudy
dawn is difficult to sense
late summer morning

2022-09-04

fog snakes over ponds
as the sun begins to rise
on hot summer days

2022-07-17

a heat wave is here
midsummer sun-parched lawn
a town water ban

2022-07-24

the air is hot, still,
summer breeze a memory
we are just baking

2022-07-31

outside it is dark
in my heart, it is day-bright
summer dreams fulfilled

2022-08-07

showers overnight
give way to partly sunny
skies; early summer

2002-06-19

day begins too warm
dry lawns mostly rare in June
more bright sun all day

2022-06-26

wet roof this morning
reflects nighttime rain showers
now summer sun comes

2022-07-03

summer game battles
between long-time-rival teams
home team might prevail

2022-07-10

dawn, before the heat
spring to be crushed by summer's
way early nineties

2022-05-22

no morning shiver
this late into spring season
cool start to hot day

2022-05-29

still cool overnight
a nicely warm day ahead
june feels like it should

2022-06-05

the grass has been cut
there is still weeding to do
summer is in play

2022-06-12

bright sun at the dawn
isolated showers today
spring weather for sure

2022-04-17

cloud-hidden shadows
will appear here by midday
as spring marches on

2022-04-24

spring sun shines brightly
windows open by midday
lawn mowers are loud

2022-05-01

there's been no other
i only had one mother
in may, it's her day

2022-05-08

seeing first crocus
may mean spring's here for many
but snow still happens

2022-03-20

hey, bud, i see you
opening to warmer air
mere nineteen tonight

2022-03-27

more clouds here than sun
our spirits won't be dampened
even with spring rains

2022-04-03

hail came yesterday
but skies have cleared overnight
a sunny spring day

2022-04-10

fierce flurries and wind
tore through the town overnight
calm sunny today

2022-02-20

shining sun above
glares off the recent snowfall
begins to make it melt

2022-02-27

cold nights, and warm days
the weather of march each year
maple sugar time

2022-03-06

chill remains today
after a brief squall of snow
fifties tomorrow

2022-03-13

a chill in the air
even inside, on the chair
northeast winter wind

2022-01-23

for the beast of storms,
bands stayed mostly to the east
moderate snow here

2022-01-30

there is a deep freeze
though not much breeze to speak of
this midwinter day

2022-02-06

dawn's flakes of snow here
won't stop the super bowl in
california

2022-02-13

the sunrise seems slow
even past the solstice day
winter a while more

2021-12-26

outside, damp drizzle
but heat's on for the winter,
inside, warm and dry

2022-01-02

branches wearing white
grass hidden under the snow
first big winter storm

2022-01-09

under the body
his hands grasp the football tight
winter playoff fun

2022-01-16

sun may not be out
designated day ignored
fall rain is forecast

2021-11-28

before the snow's slop
people rush for the season's
purchasing habit

2021-12-05

rain, sixty degrees
this cannot be december
wait for tomorrow

2021-12-12

rain retreats eastward
a mild winter storm has passed
so no white christmas

2021-12-19

a crisp, dry leaf falls
joining others on the lawn
summertime is gone

2021-10-24

when October leaves,
the many November leaves
continue to fall

2021-11-07

leaf piles wet today
rain, thunder, lightning last night
all the clocks flashing

2021-11-14

light sprinkles delay
the raking of leaves today
only this morning

2021-11-21

mostly silent rain
except for a steady drip
outside the window

2021-09-26

game one sixty two
win is what you need to do
october ready

2021-10-03

still-green grass pokes through
and needs to be mowed again
joined by early leaves

sundays are special
marking many things for us
football in england...

2021-10-17

under hurricane
threat, once again, is gulf coast
summer, fall routine

2021-08-29

labor day restarts
the seasons of school each year
chasing dreams again

2021-09-05

high smoke visible
a weekend day was hazy
still with fall's glory

2021-09-12

sharing warm blankets
real soon a great idea
chill fall nights ahead

2021-09-19

sunrise in summer
should portend heat for the day
we're getting fall temps

2021-08-01

clouds but no rain here
tv shows olympics' end
delayed one summer

2021-08-08

a bit of cool air
on the way to get bagels,
a summer blessing

2021-08-15

expecting Henri,
a summer blowhard is near
with a foot of rain

with rain for several days
but more heat ahead

has gone northeast at long last
leaving wet cellars

gentle summer rain
patters upon my windshield
driving for donuts

2021-07-25

more nineties in June
way too soon if you ask me
of course, you did not

2021-06-06

a blue-sky Sunday
bright with sun, but not too hot
fits nicely in spring

2021-06-13

soon shimmering sun
will blaze down upon our heads
wear a summer hat

2021-06-20

clouds obscure the sun
not hinting at all at the
summer heat to come

2021-06-27

a lot of hard work
tense until the final out
springtime baseball game

2021-05-09

dew appears by dawn
robins hop across the lawn
spring rituals reign

2021-05-16

twenty degrees more
than our normal springtime temps
two days of nineties!

2021-05-23

soaking spring rainfall
does disrupt baseball games but
makes the flowers grow

2021-05-30;

cool, cloudy, okay
a very good spring day to
trim the fountain grass

2021-04-11

new seed for the lawn
sprinkled to add to the green
as spring pushes on

2021-04-18

April rain falls hard
drenching the streets, fields and yards
and grass needs mowing

2021-04-25

wet out on the lawn
as the sun hides behind clouds
spring breaks are ahead

2021-05-02

the clocks must be changed
it has been by law arranged
the sun does not care

2021-03-14

drips in the bucket
maple sap runs well with spring's
temperature swings

2021-03-21

damp drizzle of spring
right now is just the best thing
buds set to explode

2021-03-28

"spring!" says the calendar
thermometer: twenty-eight
typical foul-up

2021-04-04

awaiting the sleet
upper air has too much heat
so winter slippage

2021-02-14

is winter over?
maybe too soon to decide.
an inch tomorrow?

2021-02-21

winter woes over?
before we see many greens
temps down in the teens

2021-02-28

sun is working hard
snow patches smaller each day
winter nears its end

2021-03-07

going on is hard
on learning of a friend's death
winter cold chills deep

2021-01-10

inspiration strikes
no matter what the season
effort follows next

2021-01-17

cold, not sub zero
a winter day can dawn bright
yet not become warm

2021-01-24

a storm predicted
the snow is yet to begin
get game snacks early

2021-02-07

there's very thick fog
over melting snow patches
winter hiatus

2020-12-13

snow, over a foot
snowblower put to good use
always more to groom

2020-12-20

sunshine marks morning
cold dominates its brightness
such is wintertime

2020-12-27

if far enough north
flurries of flakes and cold winds
the art of winter

2021-01-03

frost on the windshield
anticipating turkey
last rake of the leaves

2020-11-15

leaves, like a lawn's rug
moved off to the compost pile
a rite of autumn

2020-11-22

nighttime chill with frost
summer night's warmth has been lost
early winter's cost

2020-11-29

crusted snow outside
but not too much to shovel
smaller than forecast

2020-12-06

just a touch of frost
looks like the summer has passed
how long until snow

2020-10-18

we say it's forty
you say it is almost five
fall or autumn, hmm...

2020-10-25

no artifice here
snow is on the ground right now
winter has arrived

2020-11-01

contend in autumn
a quadrennial event
to choose a leader

2020-11-08

Sunday morning scene
40 starts the day's routine
summer's over - keen

2020-09-20

too dry here for weeks
rain may be on its way soon
too late for fall lawn

2020-09-27

nearly cloudless sky
cool is today's midday air
leaves are yet to turn

2020-10-04

today in sixties
a bright day before rain comes
fall weather varies

rain clouds and it's cool
grateful for break in the heat
August storminess

2020-08-16

sunburn on my arms
helping a relative move
always when too hot

2020-08-23

storm's rain has passed by
welcome moisture for the lawn
now sunny and cool

2020-08-30

night chill settles in
a morning bright to begin
the real feel of fall

2020-09-13

at dawn, a damp lawn
a baking day is ahead
summer's heat is here

2020-07-19

bird in the bathroom
was not happy it was trapped.
opened window...free!

2020-07-26

the parched lawn awaits
potential summer showers
but none for today

2020-08-02

New England August
bright sun is again burning
heat is returning

2020-08-09

summertime is here
and its heat is present, too
dry lawns already

2020-06-21

quiet dawn today
expecting some thunderstorms
with summer's hot air

2020-06-28

fireworks last night
nothing official, for sure
not even legal

2020-07-05

is it humid? check!
is it also way too hot?
check! summer for sure.

2020-07-12

bright sun on shoulders
cooling north breezes prevent
overheated work

2020-05-24

sunny, cool in May
a perfect day; go out, play
tomorrow it's June

after spring showers
puddles of standing water
will dry in the sun

2020-06-07

brush cut yesterday
trip to town's recycling place
part of a spring day

2020-06-14

long hours of daylight
obscured by heavy rainfall
snow stays to the north

2020-04-26

with spring-green tresses
trees, weeds and lawns, everything
dressed for the season

2020-05-03

a chill on the wind
mothers all wrapped up in coats
still a rite of spring

2020-05-10;

our inspiration
it's as easy as breathing
spring into action

2020-05-17

rain, maple seedlings
clear indication of spring
stay indoors all day?

2020-03-29

puzzled by the dawn
the darkness of night has gone
earlier wake up

2020-04-05

sun shining brightly
since the dawn has now arrived
warmth of early spring

2020-04-12

crusted windshield ice
that part of spring is not nice
warm sun will melt it

2020-04-19

this morning like spring
the early birds all singing
winter's been a joke

2020-02-23

still chill, sun displayed
a year when march was delayed
no lion this year

2020-03-01

it's nearing sixty
spring beckons out the window
sit still if you must

2020-03-08

morning not so chill
crocus blooms in the side yard
snow showers forecast

2020-03-15

january thaw
now there is surely no law
i must enjoy it

2020-01-26

diminished reason
to think january cold;
atmosphere warming

2020-02-02

grandniece has arrived
born the same date as her mom
winter's welcome gift

2020-02-09

just mostly cloudy
not cold but also not warm
odd february

2020-02-16

half rolls of paper
the after christmas quandry
keep or stuff landfills?

2019-12-29

the morning's sunshine
a bright january day
forgets our team's loss

2020-01-05

sixty eight degrees
after a night with drizzle
sunny winter day?

2020-01-12

bright morning sunshine
glancing off fresh fallen snow
cold now with a breeze

2020-01-19

raindrops pelting down
chilly air surrounding me
must get the donuts

2019-11-24

a forecast of snow
on the first of december
plan for long winter

2019-12-01

puzzling is fun
if it is properly done
avoid Christmas rush

2019-12-15

sun rising up late
winter solstice passed this year
more sunshine coming

2019-12-22

wet leaves on the lawn
can stay there until they're dry
ignore weekend's work

2019-10-27

hurry, hurry, now
get it done before a flake
rake, for heaven's sake

2019-11-03

will go outside soon
leaves should be gone before noon
for the neighbors' sake

2019-11-10

afternoon with flakes
well, for heaven's sake, my friends
sure looks like winter

2019-11-17

leaves begin to drop
it will seem they'll never stop
raking season's here

2019-09-29

morning chill is here
the air is still, crisp and bright
fall, it's everywhere

2019-10-06

leaves drain chlorophyll
some still green, bright yellows, reds
more color up north

2019-10-13

hard rains and strong winds
still most leaves cling to the trees
reluctant season

2019-10-20

shifting in my seat
working hard for the athletes
striving for medals

2019-09-01

use the golden rule
no matter what the season
how about today?


2019-09-08

fall isn't late here
but this silly haiku is
though not forgotten

2019-09-15

fall night, blanket tight
all my dreams interrupted
writing at midnight

2019-09-22

hot dogs, hamburgers

(about coming summer's heat)
empty of all thought

words so expressive
a poem in your pocket
spring showers described

2018-04-29

saved before written
words are inside out today
spring wishes in bloom

2018-03-04

clinging to the branch
the sudden snow avalanche
plopped onto my head

share over the internet
throughout the whole year

late into the night sometimes
not well remembered

minus six degrees
sun not on the horizon
early winter morn

late night yesterday
and a football playoff win
happy, but still tired

reuse if you can
you will have less to waste then
grandchildren say thanks

chilly fingertips
morning rain on the sidewalk
wintry day, no snow
