Tiring the heart--
mountains and ocean
too much beauty

spring time
a rainbow forms
in the sprinkler
he waters the lawn
from his wheelchair

Thanks Diana,

I saw this man in the next corner of my house doing the lawn mowing from a wheelchair. I was so moved that I wrote this haiku for him. I admire people like him who does not consider disability as a hindrance to doing everyday chores.
