–A Haiku Dirt Road Sonnet

brown hills sprinkled with
white blooms of serviceberry
waiting for dogwoods

crappie huddle up
on old Christmas trees weighted
for this shallow cove

overnight pop of
greens finally hide the light
of next hill neighbor

fawns freeze in driveway
scattered Sweet William backdrop
of almost redbuds

whippoorwills will return as
if they never left
