Haiku in the hope of an easing of lockdown

Sunrise early May

All flame and palest duck egg

Clouds of lilac grey


Just before sunrise

A muted bloom of russet

On the chilly ground


Above the skyline

Blazing – the risen sun

like a young god


Tree trunks east facing

Receive the early sunlight

Like benediction


First timid sunlight

on fissured bark: fingertips

Trace a well-known face.
