Blue Planet: haiku series

in the rising mist
newly-ploughed fields
one by one

taking turns
working the garden
robin and I

on a blue planet
spinning round the sun
a mustard seed sprouts

fat black steers
in a golden field
gaze out

sun shining
in a snowbound street
a hawk grabs a squirrel

winter dream
honey bees buzz
among apple blossoms
