    A Natural Selection # 19

    WINTER HAIKU # 3

    The snowy winter scene is
    A picturesque wonderland
    Viewed through windows

    THE FRENCH MARIGOLD – TEXTILE DYE

    The French Marigold is more than
    Just a pretty flower of the daisy family
    The Tagetes Patula florets
    Are grown and harvested annually
    To produce a golden yellow dye
    To colour animal-based textiles

    FRESH SNOW WAS FALLING

    Fresh snow was falling
    Like scattered confetti at
    A winter wedding

    IN THE MOIST EARLY MORNING

    In the moist early morning
    Dew drops embrace
    The willow stems
    Like lovers tears
    Until they evaporate
    Under the sunlight’s caress

    BARE SKELETAL TREES

    Bare skeletal trees
    Dressed now in ice and frost
    Shivering in the wind

    BENEATH THE GREY SKIES

    Beneath the grey skies
    In the crisp morning air
    An over confident fox
    Chases after a march Hare

    WINTER HAIKU # 4

    Congregations meet
    At crisp ice sculpted churches
    For winter weddings

    Such exquisite haiku...
    love 'em.
    Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty
