My latest at Bones journal

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
blistered wall
the gutter drip
slime molds
does talk consume
the elements?
Profuse thanks to Johannes S.H. Berg, Editor
