“A Few Haiku (2)”

(c) 2021 by Michael L. Utley



Stormy autumn sky
Chickens huddle in dim coop
Murmur quietly



Forest song is hushed
Hallowed autumn rain demands
Silent piety



Harried prey is still
Chipmunk hides in fern shadows
Eagle stalks in sky



Paper hornets’ nest
Clutches tight to willow’s breast
Like angry infant



Haughty magpie squawks
Lording over acorn stash
Squirrel bides his time



Meadow rainstorm ends
Tearful flowers lift their heads
Sunbeams comfort all
