Haiku--By Kelley White--United States

April 25th
Spring peepers singing
in a frozen pond.

~ ~ ~

dry leaves
shake the night birches
cricket chirp

~ ~ ~

to my mother’s bedside
harvest moon

~ ~ ~

the scarecrow’s shadow
crosses my path
autumn chill
~ ~ ~

Stark winter sunlight
cracks the ice outside the door–
starting the trip homehttps://ssl.gstatic.com/ui/v1/icons/mail/images/cleardot.gif

  1. All these haiku project beautiful images, Kelley...well done!

  2. Enjoyed them all, Kelley. Very nicely-written. Thank you for sharing them and continued blessings!
