For the past year, I've lived in a cottage in the woods. It's a far cry from the urban and urbane, but it has its moments.

From dark oak branches
Squirrels loudly chitter, "Caution,
Horned owl hunts now."

Pastel glories stand.
Self-seeding Impatiens rise.
Tended by the breeze.

Fireflies flicker by
Dance to cicada's rhythm
Nature's Broadway show

Trees under dark clouds
Sycamores, oaks and gums sway
Rain storm imminent

I love haiku particularly when they are associated with nature. Thanks for sharing, Roger. Love and peace,

Squirrels I love to see put peanuts in ground for winter, fireflies I love to watch on hot july summer nights, impatience I love the many colors and they do spread out just fine, and the trees of fall with their many splendid colors cannot be beat. These 4 nature Haiku's are great**********

Splendid Haiku Roger! I love nature ku best, especially when done by one with your expertise!Thanks for sharing!

Reviewed by Edwin Larson 8/18/2008
Not a big fan of Haiku in general but for some reason I loved immersive pastiche of sight and sound.
Would love to hear more about your 'cottage' adventures. Running out of coffee, or stepping in moose tell more ;)
