Donald Shephard

          Steaming cup of tea
          Brown leaves falling divinely
          Bracing to the bone.

          Greeting sheep by name
          Each dew-eyed ewe to slaughter
          Saddens my stomach.

          Sausages sizzling
          Breakfast munching morning fog
          Dispensed innards glow.

          Ugly dog photo
          In the autumn of my days
          Brings to mind a girl.

          A good donkey day
          Grass rising to the fetlock
          Dreaming of a foal.

          Apothegm Haiku:
          Apologies to Japan
          Masters roiling graves.

          Rushmore Dakota
          Verisimilar leaders
          Ice on our eyebrows.
