seven years now,
hanging from a nail in the barn
my father's cap and coat

    Very cool Norb. A striking, full punch in the gut ku.

    seven year, hiatus
    to watch this sunset--
    there she stands

    Dear Norbert,

    I've never before been compelled to leave my e-mail and respond to a 'ku here at tinywords until today. This is powerful. Thank you for sharing it.

    Susan

    Norbert, Your poem is so evocative. I relate to it strongly.


    I snuggle into
    your old sweater
    wishing your arms were in it.

    one more autumn
    more or less--
    as one more summer falls
