Haiku

Just one red berry
Clinging to a leafless twig
Winter's coming soon


Pale sunlit morning
Nary a cloud floats by us
Quiet as we wake


Barbecue odors
Wafting into our back yard
Hunger increases


Fireplace flickering
Toasty mornings with coffee
Greet the day with joy


Breezes tinkle chimes
Seeds scattered on the back porch
Welcome little birds


Follow red tail lights
Winding swiftly through traffic
Airport here we come


But it's a wedding
Jackets we need at sundown
Our warm scarves help too


We hear traffic roar
And see cars line upon line
While smelling fumes


I feel gentle breeze
Tickle my cheek and then go
To play somewhere else


Slumber, dream away
Erase those cares from your brow
Awake soon refreshed


Now getting older
Is not very important
Enjoy each moment
