Trumpeter Swan Haiku


wintering swans

enduring all seasons



This Trumpeter swan haiga (watercolor pencil painting)

was inspired by a photograph I took of a pair of swans I saw at a local park.

My husband and I have walked through many seasons together since 1983;

we hope to see many more winters, springs, summers, and autumns

side by side.

Birdhouse Vacancy Haiku


birdhouse vacancy

while tenants fly southward

and trees tough it out



I must confess that as December approaches,

I daydream about overwintering someplace warm and sunny.

But I’d miss my family and friends.

Warm Blessings ~ Wendy
