Haiku Challenge “waste”


nature has no waste
spring hatched eggs recycled
autumn leaves worms lunch
nature wastes no time
decomposition feeds life
maggots feeding time
new life spring events
survival of the fittest
death is not a waste
dawn chorus birds sing
not a note is wasted
territories at stake
beavers fell timbre
for food and building dams
some stored for winter
oceans have power
once wasted now utilized
winter warmth for man
no time to waste
warm months not to distant now
red deer must rut

      PS Nearly forgot, great haiku!!
