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.

bright blue dragonfly…

love and hatred

as storm clouds roil


a small boat 

mid lake waves

not so far from home


peonies gone by -

the damage from just a few

ill chosen words
