To Honor J Andrew -- my Poetry Attempts

J. Andrew has such great haiku and similar poems on his blog Past Tense. Over the past months I came up with these, my first attempts. Don't think I've posted them before.


Out in the garden,

Feathered speeding bullets

whizz past my head.

It's the blitz again.

Evening With Crows

Black feathered brooms

Sweep the sky clean

So that it will be ready

for morning.

Sunshine and Sadness

Our depression lies,

Hoping to make us despair.

God shines through it all


Setting sun

On rippling ocean.

October orange
