June 18 – June 24

Haiku #176 (June 18)

Grieving parents
Imagine their child in heaven
Meeting great-grandma.

Haiku #177 (June 19)

A child holds a toy
She’ll place in her sister’s hand.
The final present.

Haiku #178 (June 20)

On a day like this
Children can play outside late.
One girl is missing.

Haiku #179 (June 21)

Children play til nine.
“The street light isn’t on yet!”
Summer’s late sunset.

Haiku #180 (June 22)

Sorrow and regret
Are expressed in salty tears
Cried at funerals.

Haiku #181 (June 23)

Riding the right lane
Driving at the speed limit
Because I’m not late.

Haiku #182 (June 24)

Super Moon returns
And looks inside my window
Slowly he passes.

A significant snow storm
With feet in their mouths.

Later sunsets make hearts dance
For one extra hour.

Frosty winds subside.
Spring approaches carefully
Emerging seeds sprout.

Why stare at the clock
and ignore smoke detectors?
They won’t change themselves.

receding eastward
a dark slate cloud canopy
unveils a spring sky.

Spring arrives early
Necessary winds say “Hush”
To Winter’s protest.
