Haiku by Harvey Jenkins
come walk with me
there is always bird song
when we’re together
second day of sleet
I only fall twice
catching the bus
hundreds of nebula
in my hands
lack of oxygen
afraid to take that first breath
she receives a packet
of wildflower seeds

Here is also Polar Summer by Harvey Jenkins.
Warmth nudges the land
as the sun fills the sky
at the end of a long Arctic winter.
Wild flowers bounce back
after each wide paw
steps on pristine tundra.
A black nose scans cold air
and restless ice floes groan
above the sound of constant wind.
Under an endless northern sun,
white fur seeks an Arctic chill
in the open waters of Baffin Bay.
