Haiku : spring

2+

spring blossom budding
lull afore desert’s dog days
nature ablooming

haiku by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Spring is a very short season here before the summer heat hits. In a few weeks what passes as winter’s cold leaves us with spring dropping by to say hello before heralding in the blasting furnace winds of our desert summer.  I love spring.

Haibun: Elf Owl

1+

So tiny, no bigger than a sparrow, the elf owl flees other owls who would eat it in one bite.  It’s big round eyes remind me of Harry Potter glasses.  I’d like to see one one day but not in my backyard.  My cat doesn’t understand why I prefer she sticks with catfood and not dine on local birds.

elf owl flying nights
wee bird hiding in cactus
come north when buds bloom
