Haiku - Morning Coffee

sun through my windows,
geese grazing in barley fields
coffee mug in hand

beside the cool river
hum of combines and tractors
hedgerow deer watching

how smooth this old mug
how fragrant its dark tidings,
light falling across

listen by the rail fence
to crickets' clear green humming
breathe in, drink deep, smile

here at edge of day
we move as one through brightness
oh, sweet perfection!
