Sugar Season Haiku Cycle

Spontaneous, no-revision haiku scrawled in a fit of boredom….

Shadows shorten with each dawn
Totems bleed sweetness

Thirteen miles of plastic hose
Grandpa had a bucket

A grey squirrel tail, smoke and steam
Sweet in the hollow.

  3. These are just excellent! Not “crap” at all! Very impressive, especially for first efforts! My favorite is number three, followed by number one, and then number two. Email me any time if you have questions, comments, or just want to email-yak for a while! *** ๐Ÿ™‚ ***
