Threshold Haiku by Ken Chawkin for Nathanael

April 16, 2016

This haiku was inspired by the overwhelming scent of jasmine that greeted me as I crossed the threshold to my son’s home in the Santa Barbara Riviera.

Threshold Haiku

Before entering
The threshold to my son’s home
Pillars of jasmine

See more beautiful views to and from Nathanael’s Santa Barbara Riviera home that inspired another short poem.

Two and a half years later while visiting my son again I wrote another haiku about those same plants: Late Autumn in Santa Barbara.
