Back Roads Haiku

My back roads are unpaved, quiet, undeveloped, dusty in the summer and muddy in the spring. Walk along any of them and you are likely to see old family cemeteries, stone walls, streams, ponds, and a variety of flora and fauna. It's where I live, and the source of most of these haiku.

moon -

the lit snowfield

…this solitude


waxing moon

the snow capped hills

before I sleep


this sharp wind -

the sensuous curve

of a frigid moon
