January was heavenly in Florida. And, surprisingly, February in Massachusetts hasn’t been too cold. Not yet anyway. A gift!

Poetry comes slowly for some of us but one haiku at a time and hundreds will be created. When my life overflows with deaths and births which happened this month I write short poems as a release  from the cares of the world. Here’s a couple I have created.

Shelter rests in you

whispers sparrow to the elm

leaves balance on limbs

 

Sun crawls up the sky

the moon is in  the heavens

the morning-glory

 

Writing keeps me alive.
