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.

longer days -

these dogwood blossoms

holding back nightfall



what’s left of the moon

on breaking water


the only parking spaces

on the upper level

 - waning moon
