4 Garden Haiku by Martin Willitts, Jr.

Impatiens wait
to fill the empty garden,
wait impatiently       

Bees bring summer
to the creamy-peach flower
of the Almond bush    

A circular wall
and rain make a moat,
drawbridge to a tree.         

The radial structure
of the Allium, afterwards,
spikes, like frost bursts
