ancient lilacs

ancient lilacs
cover the graves
Memorial Day

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

Four Haiku

how small the song
of an unknown bird
quiet memories

daffodils bowed by rain

after a warm day
and worth the wait

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