Bugs and birds feast
not to mention fat raccoons
Summer's gifts in my garden

Golden nectarines
peaches, but for a single gene.
Never mind, enjoy.

First sip of autumn
Fresh apple juice from old trees
Arching limbs propped up

Oh now you are in my neck of the woods.  The apples are being pushed out by grapes but there are still a lot of orchards left. Apples not ready for harvest yet.  My Fuji is really producing this year, I can't wait to pick.  I have limbs dragging on the ground they are so heavy. 

arching limbs propped up
heavy with ripening fruit

I took the liberty to add tanka lines to this one.


Whisky Jack flies low
intrepid thief that he is
Food will be stolen
 
Leopard cat is not a threat
to small and hungry Gray Jay

I don’t understand.
What is this thing called “haiku”?
Some new martial art?

How exciting you chose to join us Mordee/Dee.  A little quieter here but you will find some seriously good writing in Member Poetry and the Overflow.

For inspiration

I'm glad to be here, Tink.

The sun sets slowly
flaming sky turns purple, black
twinkling night sets in
