Some of these might be considered Senryu, but I did try to include a message that would indicate the season, or some other aspect of nature in each of them.  The quatrain is a bit short, so I might add more to it at some point.  All of the following examples were my first attempts at poetry of any kind and were done just for fun.

 

 

Sleeping in Sunlight:

Absence of laughter

The children no longer there,

to tread summer grass

 

Fishing at Night:

A flick of the wrist

Line like finely spun silk

sleeping waters

 

Cycles:

Lavender and red

she bleeds her daily death –

frost in the morning

 

Forgotten:

Lost is his message

I wonder if anyone cares –

with presents, trees wait

 

Summer Carnival:

The grills fired up

Excited voices heard

Music in the air

 

2012:

Mankind awaits final doomsday (8)

A date set in stone ages past (8)

by a people thought primitive, (8)

perhaps vindicated at last. (8)

 

Possibly a new season waits – (8)

not the beckoning of the final times (10)

the dawn of mankind in twilight, (8)

repentant at last his horrible crimes. (10)
