haiku retrospective cccvi

stacking bricks
a hummingbird over
the rose campion

loaded wheelbarrow
rust-gold lichen
on the concrete

the clink of bricks
star jasmine scents
the evening air

ragged breath
brushing forget-me-not seeds
off my pants

swelling rose hips
the wheelbarrow tire
loses more air

a sip of tea
empty dye bottles stacked
on the window sill
