Separation anxiety

The Boy has left home,
A year before he should have.
We have to let go.

Sitting on a stump —
Pine sap sticks to seat of pants!
Set the stump on fire!


A January night,
Standing before a bonfire:
Hot front, chilly back.

Abandoned house

Standing forgotten:
A dilapidated house
Awaits the ’dozer.

HORACE FINKLE - Teen Ghost: Horace's Haikus

Young ghost finds haiku!

Has a new meaning.

In honor of HORACE FINKLE - Teen Ghost: Horace's Haikus.

Lunar ring

Full moon overhead,
Hub of a wheel in the sky:
A wide ring of fog.

Indoor chimney

Faint tendrils of steam,
Rising from a coffee pot:
An indoor chimney.
