Supine and Scree | Haiku

Good morning readers,

two more haiku for consumption….


Supine 1


Staccato patter

Onto supine slates and down

into mossy gutters.




Juniper slopes lap

At scree-scattered inclines and

Snow-packed corries.


Thanks for reading folks. Photos courtesy of Wikipedia and

    1. (whoops hit enter too soon lol). Also I love this now-signature-Matthew double haiku with joint post title…. making each a three-word poem on its own… I always enjoy these post of yours so much.

      1. β€œCurmudgeonly” heehee. Well I think each is a gift to us all and could easily stand on its own (in every case) but I also now feel like you have invented a triptych art form which I fInd pithy indeed. Love seeing them. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ
