Today’s haiku

hands holding each other

she’s in hospice care

in the card what can I say

but ‘thinking of you’?

 

-on hearing of a tea teacher’s decline

Today’s haiku

old mailed packageUSPS <sigh>

why do you make it so hard

to send mail abroad?

Today’s haiku – three

cozy fireplace

chilly winter night

thinking of autumn journeys

-on looking at photos from a trip to Japan

 

starry night

stars shiver above

in a cold sapphire sky

winter wonderland

 

-on looking at the stars in clear, dry Oregon weather

 

frost road

is it frost or snow?

white patches on the roadside

solstice is coming

 

-on driving Highway 30
