Day 5 – glass jar

3:15 pm – 4:15 pm

glass jar haiku

 

 

 

 

glass jar of water

a kind, grace of nostalgia

here, iced, in my hands

 

she calls out to me

standing lush in a prairie

ardent growth of weeds

 

 

 

 

spring hair is of gold

demeanor fair like her skin

her air is patient

 

light whispering calls

you have worked so hard thus far

come water the spring

 

 

summer clanks my glass

green eyes reflecting the sun

crystal as the ice

 

time to drink it in

this i thought to remember

sifting through summer

 

 

ice cracks, cracked image

oh memories are not mine

some other’s pastime

 

old tube infusions

braids, rolling hills, small voices

freckled face and ice

 

 

 

 

freckled face and glass

sitting here in this cafe

the cold glass jar laughs

 

never my prairie

tiny house on the prairie

damn television
