Haiku 688-692

From Count Syllables on Your Fingers, the collection published in 2020.

These haiku were all written on May 9, 2019.

Haiku 688

furniture polish
crammed behind the s-bend pipe
underneath the sink

Haiku 689

eleven minutes
in the life of a rosebush
could mean anything

Haiku 690

so there’s no upside
to a broken glass except
it did not cut you

Haiku 691

plenty of oatmeal
in the bowl on the table
where you never sat

Haiku 692

crow in a gray sky
above the old part of town
skims the black rooftops

  3. Thank you. I am flattered and pleased. I’m glad you liked my work; I really enjoy writing especially short poems like these. Thank you again.

  4. I think the polish hides behind that plumbing, I really do. And crows, well, they are an endless supply of interest for me. Any season of the year.
