a toddler walks outside
in a blue cowboy hat

    spring has sprung-
    green hills for
    balmy St.Patrick's day

    solstice dusk
    the slow drip
    of the toddler's creamsicle

    Dear Harold,

    what a lovely poem. Blue, I see a little boy,
    that any parent or grand parent would be proud
    of. Hope that you don't mind, but I'd love to
    share your haiku with my 6 year old son.

    Sicerely,

    Gene

    A hatching hen
    on the shore of pond,
    the duckling under the water

    chiyo

    In spring rain
    much better looking
    ...everything

    undercast spring skies
    no sun, moon, stars
    crepuscular activities

    Wonderful haiku Harold.
    .
    holding each bootstrap
    the boy takes cautious steps
    in his dad's cowboy boots

    starry sky -
    returning indoors
    sharing my thoughts with the keyboard
