Four Haiku

the hover mower
blowing earth from nearby beds
creating dust storms

on the hedgehog house
a thrush taps insistently
out pops a robin

in the back garden
half an empty bird's egg shell
in the front the rest

on the blue rose bush
all the blooms hide their faces -
from us and from the sun
