Haiku Sunday #4 – More of My Neighborhood

For this week’s photo challenge, we were asked to share a picture of our neighborhood and I posted a view of the snowstorm through my front portico. If you imagine looking just to the right of that portico, you might see this on a warm summer day. This young buck likes to hang out there cooling himself and enjoying the shade. So here’s your haiku challenge: either write a haiku about our Mule deer friend or about what you might see outside your front door!

Young Buck

Young Buck

Smiling for a pic
young buck sleeps in the cool shade
Is that a problem?

    Young buck posing for picture
    Seems to want a treat
    But unsure if it is right

    Volted fence out back

    Must settle for shade

    Flowering trees and ducklings
    The smell of cut grass


  12. ok here goes! (after 20 minutes of deep, hard effort for my first attempt at haiku!!) 😀
    She sits docile and meek
    Serene on a bed of tender green
    A heart leaps in delight!
