Jewish Life Kolot

KOLOT: Haiku

By Bonnie Enes

5 a.m.
cat purring in my ear
edge of a dream slips away

cornflower blue
planted in this day’s sky
morning reaches into heaven

on blue morning glories
dew drops wait
evaporate

chartreuse blur
humming bird
hovers at feeder

heliotrope
scent of baby powder
returns the baby years

marigolds
faithful companions
to corn
blue iris opens
a palm
filled with sun

cucumber slices
in bowl of sour cream
summer sin

crisp garden peas
mouth fills with
fresh

sitting on the patio
watching the corn grow
I am almost there

newborn’s feet
salmon underside
fresh out of water

Bonnie Enes is a poet living in Bloomfield.
