wings and things


on August 12, 2012

Son haiku

You’re a total brat,

but you have your angel side.

I love you too much.

Unreliability haiku

I didn’t turn up.

“And why am I not surprised?”

my friend says to me.

Hearty haiku

Edges of my heart

are broken, frayed and scabby

I don’t pick the scabs.

Joyful haiku

I watch all the birds,

and the rain blurs my vision,

but they fly freely.

Flower haiku

The roses suffer.

The camellias grow huge.

I want sunflowers.

Friendship haiku

I am a good friend

to those who forgive me all.

Those people have wings.

Blogging haiku

The blog world is weird

and magically scented.

Unexpected bliss.

Husband haiku

You were once my world

and now this world has collapsed.

Parkinson’s disease.
