Haiku #1 Waiting

I began today’s morning walk with the intention of a “nature focus” for my second Haiku. Birds twittering and the crunch of wheat stalks underfoot were the only sounds, but it was the image of crows on the ground, bales of straw, and clouds that inspired todays Haiku followed by the thought that everyone believes that the harvest is earlier this year.

Bales watching clouds paint the sky,
Waiting for Autumn”
