Tanka of the Day ~

    
Heat radiating 
    off the faded black highway,
        petal to the floor,
    flying across the desert
        on the Fourth of July . . .

Tanka of the Day ~ Dozing in my chair

    
Dozing in my chair
        sunlight peeking through the leaves
    dreaming of summer.
        A squirrel jumps down from the tree;
            the dog barks at its antics.

Haiku of the Day ~ White petals stained pink

    
White petals stained pink
    Falling,
        Drifting,
             Descending...
                Once more spring arrives.

Bitter cold morning;
    Smudge pots blackening the sky
