Time Change

Fast forward Spring-

New batteries point clock hands

Hope needs rewinding.

Not in a cradle,

No longer nailed to a tree:

Tomb-less Existence.

Thanksgiving Haiku

Come to the table

He’s prepared a feast for you

Become Thanksgiving

Haiku from a grieving heart


The shortest distance 

Between two points is your love

But I am alone


Meet me tomorrow

Along your rocky shoreline

The waves are lapping


Together we birthed

A boy, we buried a man

We began a tree


Nothing fills the cup

Rain falls from aching skies

Sadness overflows


B-, “I still love you”

My words find no resting place

A tomb is inside
