Day 5 – glass jar

Saturday, September 5, 2009

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
