lightning bugs reflect
a mason jar of silence-
gold dust in my hand

    I'm delighted to pass along the news that this haiku will be reprinted in the Spring of 2007 in a book: The Ringing Ear: Black Poets Lean South, edited by Nikky Finney (University of Georgia Press). Congratulations, Sheree!

    snow covered ledge--
    oozing summer
    this shrivelled apple core
