Sedgemere Haiku–Spring

In honour of National Poetry Day this Friday, the remainder of my posts this week will be in verse.

2016-04-18 14.50.46 cropFog billows in wet.
Frosting hair, spider webs, grass
With silver gilding.


Magpie warbles loud
In early morning darkness,
Waking up the sun.


Bees hum in purple
Lavender blooms, blue pollen
Dusting hairy backs.


Seedlings defy frost,
Growing tall in warm sunshine,
Sheltered under glass.


Sparrows descend to
Old sheds, bringing straw, grass, noise
Leaving poo, feathers.


Ploughs plough, seagulls wheel
Overhead seeking
The freshly turned worm.
