Upside-down planters: A Haiku

Upside-down planters;
Some orange paint, some white dots--
Now they are mushrooms!

Lines on brick and glass: A Haiku

Lines on brick and glass;
Angles, sunlight and shadow.
Behind, noon traffic.

Pumpkin spice creamer?: A Tanka

"Pumpkin spice creamer?
But it's not even fall yet!"
That's true, I know, but--
let me enjoy my coffee,
my first pleasure of the day.

Zoo Atlanta with Elyse

Today Elyse and I went to Zoo Atlanta, one of our first outings to anywhere farther than a couple of miles from home since the coronavirus pandemic began. We had to wear masks most of the time (which is the correct requirement; I don't know that I would have been willing to go if masks had been optional), and the path through was very rigid and set, unlike the meandering back and forth you can usually get away with, but it was nice to be out and to be...well, anywhere, frankly, besides home.

Here are some of the pictures I took while we were there:

(Elyse did wear her mask most of the time, but obviously she took it off to drink.)

(They are so like our cats at home, these lions. And also not.)

Rain in the distance: A Haiku

Rain in the distance
Thunder, wind--but no lightning!
Disappointing storm.
