Cinquain 17

dawn-sky

Window
facing the dawn;
the swelling song of rooks
and pigeons, as this glass picture
brightens

maize crop
seven feet tall
valiantly holds the field
against the creeping shadows of
autumn

Cinquain 15

Bees wait
for tangled scent
of flowers yet to bloom;
I wait too, smelling only earth
and rain

Seedlings

Stop. Look.
Arrested by
the neon glare of red
and yellow bold and bedazzling
tulips

Cinquain 13

These days
between seasons –
crows circle their old nests,
wings braced against the buffeting
windstorm

Rain taps
on the window;
should I answer the knock,
grab coat and wellies and go out
to play?

Cinquain 11

Sweet peas

Gushing
water revives
these blossoms of autumn –
the sound awakening a thirst
in me
