Vines Gardens Haiku 5

Fuzzy hanging fruit
and a twisted, knotty trunk--
what is this strange plant?

Vines Gardens Haiku 4

Abandoned hothouse
at the edge of the gardens--
weeds prosper there now.

Three Vines Gardens Haiku

Selfie by the lake
as summer makes its exit
this lazy Wednesday.

Faded red flowers
of plastic still standing watch
the boy now long dead.

Essays left to grade:
sixty. Yet the air is cool,
this swing, inviting.
