Tri-haiku XX (Circular Green)

by Jem Croucher

This circular green
Grown, cut back, abundant now
as summer takes hold

This circular green
A comfort true and fragrant
These summer senses

This circular green
With me, part of me, in me
I am in summer

The Woodland

by Renwick Berchild

I am inferior. Let me say it.

Let it roll on my tongue, get pressed to my inner cheek, let it
fall out to the earth, let the solar rays shine on it,
the rain hammer over it,
the soil encapsulate it,
have it arise.

Greenhouse

by Jem Croucher

I have a little greenhouse
in a lovely sunny spot
It’s covered in green plastic
and inside it’s pretty hot

At present I am growing
several things from seed
Some courgettes and some lettuce
and some parsnips that we need

Produce (aka ‘Allotment V’)

by Jem Croucher

Imagine our amazement
when this evening on Ham Field
we discovered our allotment
had delivered its first yield
Some courgettes and a squash or two
which in the sunshine haven’t lingered
Leading us to think that we
may well be quite green-fingered!

Allotment III

by Jem Croucher

It’s June and the allotment
is looking like you wouldn’t believe
Far more than I think we hoped for
and more than we could conceive

Little Lavenders

by Jem Croucher

We bought some little lavenders
they arrived once in the post
Came as little seedling plugs
in compost, playing host
At first they were quite tiny
but we put them in the sun
And even though they’re still quite small
I think the time has come

Our Unknowing

by russtowne

May our unknowing lead to breakthroughs and growth,

And our impediments inspire songs of gratitude,

Whether sung aloud or only within our hearts.

Serpent

by Renwick Berchild

A road that winds back in on itself, handless creature
of the wood whose crown is dirt,

slow in pace
and intake.

Killing is a long trial,
that begins with observance and waiting. From cool dim morning
to the heat of high noon, darkness inserts itself
into the squeeze of time.

Apple blossom promise

by Jem Croucher

IMGP1094

We have a little apple tree
which grows bigger by the year
Its starting to sprout blossom
but no fruit has yet appeared
No matter, for its flowers
show that it is biding time
before producing apples
which I’m sure will taste just fine

Growing Pains

by Renwick Berchild

Pretty red dot devours the tip of the knife with
Pretty bad cut and pretty tall shout and a pretty
Fast race to the kitchen sink where I take a bath
In pretty cold water with pretty bad sting and

A new tree

by Jem Croucher

IMGP9440

Last year the tree outside our house
got ill and sadly died
And when they said they would replace it
I fear we thought they’d lied
But then to our amazement
just the other day
A little sapling tree appeared
in its place across the way

(not) Gardening

Garden needs a tidy up
Jasmine’s overgrown
Passion flower needs cutting back
Some time since grass was mown

smell the loam

Green shoots
on the trees
sprouting now
into leaves

Spider

by Jem Croucher

 

Twelve months ago our spider plant
Was just a few small fronds
But something’s happened since as if
We’d waved a magic wand

Green

The border stolen from our view
Is now transformed as nature
Covers it with grass anew

Cobblestone walkways whilst add warmth.
A welcoming atmosphere.

At the top of a rhythmic vibe

Rolling in togetherness, we fly

A constant caress to imbibe

daughters – haiku

by billgncs

where did my infants go?

two arrows fly free
beauty, kind hearts and laughter
a sparkling treasure
