January Haiku Poetry

I am hidden
except for this mighty sky

upon the earth
moments wandering
through the narrow bays
eagle traveled moons ago
frosted sky
heavenly blue waters
upside down
sun rays
fills the bareness
sparkle sounds
birch framed blues
winter lake waters hold
the rain
a gold stone day
in a marbled sky clouds
cut, diced and sliced
snow pearl day
only you and a moonstone sky
nothing as rich
making me smile
as I just cooked
black-eye peas
snow etched ridges
hiding among pine tree rows
chasing white traces

My January Tanka Poems

a cold grey stone morning
chilled air and marble icing
spread evenly over the horizon
sliced & cut into laced cloud bands
as they criss-cross the cliffs below

winds now shift south
hitting the water with precision points
like great ship convoys
battle lines form for some great war
heading toward distant shores

delicate soft winter breezes
my sky winds came by today
lingering for a morning stay
of oven fresh rasberry scones
and hot orange-spiced tea

there upon these Ozark hills
once claimed bounty of land
plowed on the rocky ridges
homestead and fences – a mule & a plow
Oh, these unsung farmlands gone

warm air & hints of pine scents
delicate tree breezes
you can hear the fall leaves still
clinging to their old oak homes
not yet free to roam
