Eyebrows of Geese

I’m touched to find a tiny book of mine, published in 1986, recently Book of the Week at http://www.thehaikufoundation.org/2016/10/17/book-of-the-week-eyebrows-of-geese/

Across the sky
Two eyebrows
Of returning geese

Vase of dried flowers
Before the mirror
Outside the window — prairie

Fog rising
Spring thaw
Ache in my old scar

These were written at Ragdale, in the Chicago suburbs, were you could walk in a remnant of untouched prairie. The cover of the chapbook was done by my mother-in-law Abbie Winson, a forerunner of her later calligraphic work.
