Haiku on Geese

A sky of geese falls
In cacophonous ripples
Still waters shattered

The YouTube video by 50 Duck in a Hot Tub is a replay of a 2 hour long live stream from 2018. I don’t recommend watching the entire video unless you have a lot of time on your hands but the first five minutes fit with my post and is amazing to see wave after wave of these Canada Geese land on the water.

The Hunter and the Hunted

I think spiders are amazing creatures, using homespun silk to trap the insects looking to feast on my garden. As much as I love these hunters I also have an irrational fear reaction to them at a subconscious level. As ridiculous as it sounds, I lost count of how many times shivers ran up and down my spine as I was searching for the images for this post.

In the tall grasses
Spinning ’round your silky trap

The winged huntress waits

Haiku – Winter Storm

The inspiration for this haiku bloomed in the aftermath of a family ice skating excursion. It was hot cocoa all ’round and my little one was captivated by the giant snowflakes falling on the icy cold side of our bay window, complete with heart drawings in the steamy cocoa fog.

Winter white blanket
of softly fallen snow through
cocoa steamed hearts
