those evenings outside
in the glo worms' green dancing
- why are they gone?

The number of glo worms in the garden has diminished over the years. Once they were abundant. Dozens blinking their neon green lights on and off in the evening. Now they are a rare sight. There were  years when we didn't see any at all. Last year we saw three. Hopefully this year they will return once more in abundance. They are an uplifting sight. Good for the soul.

Haiku at the edge of a wood

in silence one stands
 a pondering figure draped in fog -
where now goes the way?

the shed on the slope
where the wine grows in summer
- the fog rolling in
