Like a ghost I move
Carried on my silent paws
See, hear, smell the prey

What Is Lost #nature #poet #haiku #amwriting

 

Smoke from summer fires
Flows thick down dry arroyos
Ghost of rivers lost

In a Dry Forest #haiku #nature #poem #poetry #flower

Agave bloom in New Mexico

In my yard

Agave flowers
Lift their blooms above the trees
Reaching for the sun

Focus on a Sign of Spring #Haiku #poem #poetry #insect #spring

First roly poly
Creeps from the thawing compost
A true sign of spring

Pill bugs, roly polies or doodle bugs – much nicer names than woodlouse

Just When You Think Everything’s Under Control #haiku #poem #poetry #cat #cutecat

I lost control of my schedule again this week. We’ve been laying a new bamboo floor, and had to deal with a kitty-cat lumpectomy, too. Yes, that’s Harvey, my model for Glory on Mars original cover.

by Kate Rauner as inspired by Harvey, who suffered for this poem

 

 

 

glory-ebook-267x400UPDATE: For 2017 I’ve put out a new book cover for Glory on Mars. It’s more science-fiction-y (I hope) and less quirky. So Harvey can retire from his modeling career – but to tell you the truth, he doesn’t seem to care much.

 

 

Beauty in the Bone #Haiku #nature #Poem #poetry

Essence of the formimg_4758-300x197
Buried under flesh and fur
Beauty of the bones

Here in the forests of New Mexico’s mountains, we all come across interesting bones. Everyone has a few on their porch.
