Gatekeeper

Hey, thanks for the pic. That's it! Distinctive crown pattern.

 

 

Small feathers scattered

house sparrows gather them up

Death will line the nest

soon must flee cacophony

Oriole falls dead

Mole tunnels under

dries out my row of string beans

Beets are the next row

The curious ask

where are all the butterflies

None in my garden

the silence of stagnant air

Didn't feel a thing

my garden is looking bleak

Season of dying

saluted with a dark beer

The coming long nights

目を閉じる

年の思い出 --

冬の雨


me wo tojiru

toshi no omo-i-de --

fuyu no ame



closing my eyes

memories of other years --

winter rain falling

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim

haiku journal jvg #75 Oops at first I approached this as the haiku train and took my cue from Brendan. Fortunate that the winter rains are what everyone here is talking about too. Yesterday I took a picture from my front door of the winter rain in my yard. My garden has been so in need of rain.

Winter rain falls
on drought parched memories
rocky path to Spring

These are some I had written in the winter of 2013 when a friend of mine, Godai, wrote about seeing a red fox playing in the snow while feeding the birds.

 

Feeding winter birds

Red fox playing in the snow

Godai writes Haiku

 

He then challenged me to do more So.

 

Frozen water falls

Icicles hang in the trees

Cold temperatures

 

Then he showed a picture of a snowy owl in flight and said write about that.

 

Sunrise in winter

Snowy owl hunts over fields

Poor little field mouse
