My #HaikuFebruary-1st Half

Red-tailed hawk arcs down
Up again talons outstretched
Watchful from great heights


Cedar waxwings flock
On berry-laden branches
Delightful songs reign


Solid gray blanket
Horizon to horizon
Atmospheric wrap


Naked limbs shiver
Potential of life subdued
Wait for a warm face


Light gobbles night’s stars
Mindless of searching dreamers
Where is the darkness?


Sky bending towers
Cenotaphs to those buried
Below red-hued sand


Mountains encircle
Brilliant shimmering city
of the desert plain


A fickle mistress
Universe, why do you thwart


Apple, why must it
Be so aggravating to
Add my own music
