Moments In Time: Haiku - Poem by Bonnie Shipman

Mysterious gray
The shadow of a lone tree
Silently waiting


Spring is cold sunlight
Becoming warm once again
And touching the trees


spiked bird beak peppers
holes in a tree; little bugs
burrow deeper in


on a small flower
dancing gently in the wind
a black bumblebee

Topic(s) of this poem: beauty, bird, bug, nature, observation, spring, tree

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I learned to write haiku years ago and loved the form. It is a good way to make an observation about details we usually ignore.
