Daily Haiku: May 20 & 21

Dear Readers and Followers:

It’s not often that I run two haiku in a row by a poet, but I recently read some haiku by

Jo Balistreri, and they caught my attention.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do:

 

wet sheets
snap on the line

chickadee song

 

 Acorn, #33,  Fall 2014

 


the caged suet
spins peck by peck
a squirrel’s missed leap
