Bones journal of contemporary haiku #20 July 15, 2020
:
:
absent spring
(one-line sequence in the time of the COVID-19)
where absent spring fans out even weeds breathe their last
*
in the lilac’s loosened breast a somersault of soughing winds
*
the swarm of maps random drizzle crafted a helpless tangle on blackberry thorns
*
scratch marks in the mist a tremor of hands the only sound
*
incense plumes that hurt the eyes spiraled sighs off sealed-in scorn
*
between weeping trees and shifting storms tautened strings
*
ocean roar but grief unclogging lungs of leaf litter with shards of sky
*
still creeping up sand hills void of spring an unfinished palette bleeds the tides

:
single haiku
:
ripped from rants
debates about Eden
disbanded
*
blistered wall
the gutter drip
Morse-coded
*
slime molds
does talk consume
the elements?
Profuse thanks to Johannes S.H. Berg, Editor
