Haiku-a-day -- Fall Garden Cleanup

picked empty by goldfinches
discarded starbursts

leave messages on the fence

  1. I love the discarded starbursts. Even though it makes me think of candy wrappers. Which I seem to find everywhere when the boys are home. And "written in tendril." One of those lines I wish I had written. Like I do with so many of yours.

    Here's mine for today. A double haiku. OK, well not actually haiku, because there is actually one extra syllable. But I have to get ready for work and I couldn't figure out how to get rid of it.

    “Colorado Winter”

    Saturday I peel
    off sweatshirt stride joyfully
    four miles behind dog

    Sunday dog drags me
    shivering in coat hat gloves
    mile of misery
