    beneath the window sill
    ash-filled urn

    Tears of rust
    on the hibachi
    after your departure.

    picture the present
    wrapped in white ~ fresh spring bouquets
    hidden underneath

    Hi Fran. Incredible stuff. I actually came to your work via a haiku at another site - the one about the mime swallowing the key. Really great. Your haiku reminds me of Clement Hoyt's work. Thanks.

    winter dawn on the phone
    you wouldn't know it--
    she has her mother's eyes
