Spring 2015

raindrop crown’s
the chrysalis
slow motion beauty

still green
above the snow
with holly buttons

coin tossed
down the village well
a hollow wish

snowing emails
my thumbs
don't need mittens

her coin tossed
down the well
echoes hollow

beneath the bird feeder
tiny paw prints in
the crumbs of winter

dawn mist
pastels
reflection

pine and birch
ghost the lake
before the loon

rifle shot
lake ice
shivers

river ice
candles in the Sun
spring’s wind-chimes

Bryan D. Cook, Ottawa,  January-May 2015

Context for  Spring 2015
I continue to attempt haiku-like poetry, though I am still learning the art and will be doing so for the rest of my days! I don't worry too much about whether I succeed......I like three-liner thoughts and experiences. As a member of Ottawa's KADO haiku group, I learn much from the other more experienced members and thank them for it.
