Our friend John Scarlett, who lives over in Rossie where he practices the (magical) craft of blacksmithing, is also a talented poet.

In a casual post to some of his friends, he include a few haiku which leapt off the page for me: so north country the visual and auditory imagery.

Here they are. Feel free to share some of your haiku–particularly those that “feel” like they live in this region.

 

cow-pie frisbee

with my granddaughter–

not telling her mother

 

 

 

pond walk–

frogs and I

perform “the plunk”

 

 

 

eyeball floater

or fruit fly. . .clapping

clapping

 

 

 

at day’s end

morning glories, too

played out

 

 

misty sunrise

asparagus unwilling to let go

of its cloud of light
