Four Haiku for Sunday


1
Maple, poplar, oak—
the names of my forest friends
linger on my tongue.
 
 
2
Women keep weeping
because roots of war grow deep,
and church bells go mute.
 
 
3
In the plum tree’s shade
my skinny little daughter
rubs two shiny coins.
 
 
4
Mother Earth, sounding
oddly like my own mother,
says, “Mend your ways, child.”

Melange of autumn leaves near the banks of Cache la Poudre River, Fort Collins, Colorado
 


among the brown ones
a single red maple leaf—
autumn’s tattered texts
in the middle of a book
that the author never ends
