a biting wind reminds
us, the years-long winter
will continue to loiter

we have to look closely
to detect the green

after the inauguration

U.S. Capitol

National Guard "invited"
to the inauguration.

Do they know with whom
they share a marble bed?

Will more than bread
be broken amongst them?

Happy Haiga Day!

The Measure of an Inauguration

It's all about enumeration.
Do not look to count the angels
of our nature as they boogaloo
on the head of a pin, stipulate
that they reveal themselves
hovering overhead. Only then
may true numbers be tallied.

Haiku Sticky #580

I first came across a stink bug when I moved, in 2019, to a city only 20 minutes away from where I had formerly lived.  And then I started coming across more.  Come to find out, a lot of people have become familiar with stink bugs.  I don't know if this is a result of climate change, but, I've removed two stink bugs from my apartment this week.  They're easy to catch, so I open the back door, toss them out, and wish them well.
