shorter days . . .
wizened grapes
cling to the vine

    Dear Anne, Beautiful haiku. I read you are a home help support worker, and am grateful always to the people who cared for my mother, cooked and cleaned, worked in the yard etc. My parents had a grape arbor too, so many layers to your lovely poem. Best wishes, Ellen
