Casket descends into place

Empty hearse drives off.

Mourners eat at the repast

Scent of lilies fades

Beloved wife rests

Next to an empty #grave

    Haiku Poems


Hand-made boutonniere
A tear escapes the dad's eye
And hides in his sleeve.


White mum corsages

Hankies remove joyful tears
Mothers brim with pride.

I massage cramped calves

After a botched yoga pose
Parking lot beckons
