HAIKU

Adelaide B. Shaw

 

November gray –
a bare bones view
of the woods
 
   
  a white birch –
the bare silhouette
against the barn
   
two dragonflies
skimming over the pond –
frog on a rock
 
   
  low morning fog –
in the distance the grumble
of a tractor
 
winter storm –
heating the chicken soup
for a second time
