Haiku by Rosalie Calhoun

You said
You’d always love me
Until

My father asked
“ When did my kids get older than me?”
Dad’s in denial

Home of minimalism 
A sip of fennel tea w honey
I can breathe 

Darkening evenings
Melancholy over loss of summer 
And Grandmother’s gone too

  1. I just love the haiku about darkening evening, loss of summer. And Grandmother — who I imagined comforting, warm, all embracing like a soft summer day. A lovely poem.
