haiku retrospective ccclxxxvi

wuthering wind
the smooth young bark
of the eucalyptus

cold frame
calla lilies bow
in the wind

bent grass
the dark maroon petals
of the bearded iris

cut flowers
evening sunshine flickers
on the damask chair

evening wind
a cone of light surrounds
the old gas stove

flaking paint
bunches of herbs hang
upside down

disconnected telephone
the wavy glass in the farmhouse

cast iron pans
a chrysanthemum petal
on kwan yin's nose
