Simple

Simple

A simple truth, a simple plan, a simple life
for a simpleton.

So Fair A Day

So Fair A Day

A saccharine breeze
tickling me
a sweet treat day
so happy and free.

Cotton candy clouds
and corn dog trees
so fair a day
made just to please!

Haiku #9

haiku #9

birds catch bugs in bark
wind carries the smell of smoke
no sign of concern

This is my photograph taken while watching the birds that morning. There was the smell of smoke on the wind after it changed direction and we had 3 spare the air days after this quiet beginning.

Drought

The Imaginary Garden With Real Toads challenge is write a new poem or prose poem inspired by the title, verse or themes by Judith Wright.

I picked this stanza from her work.
I praise the scoring drought, the flying dust
the drying creek, the furious animal,
that they oppose us still;
that we are ruined by the thing we kill.
We are having a terrible drought in CA so I did a tanka about it. MIne is American Tanka, I only point out the difference in the soundings of the languages.

Drought 
My lawn's turning brown.
A drought scores California
firestorms char the land.
Dusty with a chance of thirst.
Wild animals find downtown.
