Spring Willow Tree Branches

the heart of the storm
willow branches sweep the ground 
bending with the wind 

scattered chairs left abandoned 
as the party moved inside

Lightning Strike | Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 353

lightning branches out
its particles swift to find
short paths to the ground

as bolts inflame the treetops
the earth trembles at the sound

Night sounds #RonovanWrites

Nightlight

chittering of squirrels
as they settle into sleep
twilight turns to night
as mockingbirds sing their songs
to stars scattered on the sky

rough chop the fixings
melt some butter in the pan

when you’re alone, please yourself

Dawning

the dawn comes quickly
lighting clouds beyond my feet
valleys filled by mist

somewhere below, crowds gather—
unseen…unheard…not counted
