SINGLE TO MINGLE

In the dead of night,
A nightingale sings aloud;
Ants crawl near the nest.

SHOWDOWN!

Bighorn sheep combat!
Simultaneous headbutt;
Lamb runs down mountain.

DINNER DATE

Two glasses of wine,
Enhance festoon laid table;
Violinist plays…

BEASTS OF BURDEN

Alongside the barn,
Harnessed Oxen stride forward;
Axe lays near the shed.

PITTER PATTER

Stratus clouds above,
Combined with misty morning;
Warm tea rests on porch.

HOMESTEAD HERO

On a cattle farm,
Dog’s bark alarm Steers to flee;
Red fox walks away.

Monica St Hillaire: Aspiring Writer – Writing has always been a passion of mine. Compiling words together will always be a challenge I shall withstand. My desire, to be the best Wordsmith I can be. A lover of traditional and modern Haiku, a field I hope to one day master.
