Like the pine needles

Quieting every footstep

On the asphalt path


A long walk outside

Quiets the noise in my mind

In only moments


Needled evergreens

Buffer the sounds of the road

The park is peaceful


Gone from the office

Far from the water cooler

And daily grumbles


A needed lunchtime escape

Prepared for the afternoon


(A Haiku Sonnet)

Urban Gardeners


Swiss urban green thumbs

Go green for food, social, health

Reasons, wealth matters


(A sciku Poem)

A poetic synthesis of the conclusions of the research article

“Digging for the roots of urban gardening behaviours”

First Day of Summer


Under an umbrella of sunshine, white clover flowers rise above their own heart-shaped foliage amidst a green mat of linear leaves. They shudder in the warm gentle breeze, stopping only momentarily before vibrating again.

Bees visit flowers

Buzzing to bring life before

Mower buzzes through


(A Haibun Poem)
