Two spiny lizards
chase across the stucco wall
enjoying their spring
Today's poem is a haiku. I like to think that even when I can't think what to write, I can come up with a haiku. I was really busy yesterday, I went to the gym; I did my morning walk, I went to the dentist. I should have been thinking poetry all that time, but I was worried about other things, so this is what you get today. I actually like this haiku a lot. I like the way the last line has more than one meaning. A desert spiny lizard is a big one, about 10 inches long. I watched this couple from my shower this morning.
Your challenge for today is to write your own poem about an indication you have that it is springtime.
My copy of LIFTING THE SKY, Southwestern Haiku and Haiga came in the mail this week with four of my haiku published by Dos Gatos Press .
