Haiku and Loku Days-Amidst Morning Clover

© Jo Hewitt THE TEAL MANGO, 2015

The SSB Drever and I took our morning walk at the park today. It has just enough wildness, excessive manicuring kept at bay, such that its carpet of grass is sprinkled with a confectionary delight of clover. I love the look of clover. I love the smell of it. As a child, for me, it was the perfect bed for dreaming under butter milk blue skies.

Amidst Morning Clover

Humble and gentle,
Subtle, whispered summer scent,
On childhood thought plays.
 
Sunlit fragrant haze,
Clover blossom path beckons
Back to childhood days.

Haiku and Loku Days-Memo to the Parks Department

© Jo Hewitt THE TEAL MANGO, 2015

This event and haiku are from 2012.

The SSB Drever and I ran across something today on our walk that I wish we hadn’t.  Someone had dragged a picnic table into a tree covered ravine/gully and now it was being use for some “extra-curricular activities”. There are some trails that pass through the gully between the grassy areas, running right by the table. Thank goodness I was alert to noises. We did not take those trails; therefore, fortunately we were not exposed to the full monty in action.

The participants had driven their scooter right up to the treed area so they could high tail it out of there when they were done. The funny thing was that they made a few rounds on the streets that border the park before finally leaving the park area. Maybe they were trying to dry out, air out a bit before they headed home.

I think the City Parks Department should know about this. So…
