My poem was previously published in SMILE; and Humoresque (for the United Amateur Press Association of America, edited/published by Jean Calkins).

the faith of birds

the faith of birds
trusting in seed
under snow

My haiku was published first in SMILE, a large print journal that was edited/published by Joyce M. Johnson.

Four Haiku

how small the song
of an unknown bird
quiet memories

sunrise
daffodils bowed by rain
recover

after a warm day
and worth the wait
forsythia

I wonder
what today’s poem may be
lilacs in the wind
