Haiku 13, 15, 17

Haiku from long ago. Number 15 refers to an accident I had with a rotary cutter for fabric, requiring an ambulance…

Listen to those birds.
What can they be thinking now?
That a thaw has come?

Painful disbelief.
The blade has cut my finger!
How did this happen?
1/26/99 (for 11/13/98)

The watch is broken
And cannot be fixed again.
Good-bye, my old friend.

  1. Thank you. Even back then I think I saw haiku and poetry in general as being a way for me to go over my very specific observations or feelings or whatever, rather than address big theme.
