Some Haiku

16} Hedges in full bloom

Attracts bees and butterflies

On the warm spring day.

17} In the noonday sun

Lulling sounds of the locust

Puts me right to sleep.

18} Dog barks at squirrel

As it scampers up the tree

Bird feeder swaying.

19} Broken limbs from storm

Standing water on the ground

Robin Red Breast sings.

20}The sun now rising

The rays cast prisms on wall

The rain has stopped.
