The Four Seasons

A suite of Haikus, read by our own Daisy.

SPRING

Dripping from the eaves,

Snow melts slowly while it turns

The hard sod to mud.

***

The dog barks hoarsely,

He echoes in vibrations

As the moon shines down.

***

Up through the green turf,

Crocuses lift heads of pearl

Into buoyant air.

********************

SUMMER

Sunshine comes with force,

As the days grow languorous

With burdensome heat.

***

Seeds become green plants,

The crops are bearing their fruits

As farmers tend them.

***

Sporadic rain flows,

The earth turns and grows cooler

With the passing days.

********************

AUTUMN

Happy the growers,

Watching as the earth becomes

The Mother of all.

***

Fecund and boundless,

Drunkards fall into deep sleep

Waiting for harvest.

***

Reapers bear armloads,

Grateful for abundant growth

From plentiful earth.

********************

WINTER

Dreadful the weather,

The drops of rain turn to ice

And soil freezes hard.

***

Warm within their homes,

The peasants dream of the spring

Flowered and fertile.

***

Harshly the wind blows,

Cold will seep into their bones

But soon life quickens.
