    ruby ~ lustre
    simply luscious
    on the lips

    something about certain words
    their sounds
    so mellifluous

    moon shadows . . .
    the elk herd bedded down
    by the highway

    I was just thinking yesterday I should write a solstice haiku; but nothing inspired me. I really love this one. :)

    wintry sun
    in a yellow puddle--
    melts the white snowman
