Lately

smell of earth is yellow
/squint your eye/
make believe

there’s life in the bush
yodeling
a suckling song

raw light
is life itself ~
can you hear the crocus?

      1. Thanks, Angie. I’ve been buried in Facebook-land but I clawed my way out and rediscovered this little haven of published creativity. I think it’s better here, somehow . . .

  1. Yes, that’s such a good tip about the 12 syllables in English, isn’t it? I didn’t do haiku this time, but will remember it for the future. Yours are lovely! I particularly like the idea of hearing the crocus.
