Margaret D. McGee, US
 

 

 

 

Haiku

 

michelle’s 50th—
streamers, salsa, and a fly
on a pink balloon

 

 

cold breath
across the fence, mist lingers
on withered fields

 

 

the sword above the mantle
reflects a flutter
of red silk

 

 

under the porch lantern
she picks out chestnuts to roast

 

 

time to throw away
stones gathered and cherished
so long ago

 

 


in moon shade
a plunging bobber

is that a keeper?

 

 

through the gate
along the circling path
she walks and waits

 

 

white foam
at the turning tide
pebbles mumble
