Haiku - comfort

hard ground becomes
muddy transformation
as rain seeps

slow drip relief
soothes weary limbs
midsummer rain

gently swayed
in the birdhouse
wind gust lullaby

Haiku - shadows and light

nowhere to run
dark shadow overhead
little field mouse

cicadas serenade
moths on naked bulbs
drawn to light

dappling leaves
filter midday sun
