“A Few Haiku (1)”

(c) 2017 by Michael L. Utley



Raindrop on elm leaf
Slipping toward oblivion
I am falling too



Misty river bank
I can hear the water cry
Through its mournful veil



Stream among the reeds
Peeks at me through cattails
Laughs and runs away



Autumn rain has come
Orb weaver’s sorrowful web
Latticework of tears



New-born winter calves
Gambol in fresh morning snow
Like little drunk men



Chilly winter sun
Heaven dines on balmy feast
Earth begs for a crumb

    1. Thanks so much. Memories of my days on the farm, watching these little calves frolic and stumble about in the bright, freezing mornings. Calves are adorable and curious and awkward and entertaining to watch. I appreciate your nice comment, as always. 🙂
