Three Haiku – October 14, 2018

No poem so pretty

As a yellow maple leaf

Fluttering to earth.

*****

Will you come to tea?

The kettle overboils

Hear the shrieking steam.

*****

Chattering of birds

Dispels these dark thoughts for now

Hazard a smile.

Three Haiku – October 8, 2018

No cries of sea birds

Steel, concrete, and car exhaust

New Jersey marshlands.

*****

Food loses savor

And my ribs begin to show

This anxiety.

*****

Mist shrouded tree trunks

Wet leaves glisten – fungi sprout

Early autumn damp.
