Happy Haiga Day!

A few weeks ago, in a post Covid gathering, there was a discussion of the proposed Juneteenth federal holiday.  At least one person spoke up to say she had never heard of Juneteenth.  If you, too, were unfamiliar with the holiday and want to learn more than has been presented in media snippets over the past week, start with this post from the Library of Congress.

Juneteenth

"how come I never
learned that in school?"

American minds may
yet be emancipated by
a proclamation of truth

Lunch, June 2021

Reunion of old friends
after the pandemic.
Same old, same old
never more welcomed.

temperature in the 90s

spider runs up and down
the kitchen wall

where it finds the energy
I don't know, but I can't
stop watching it in awe

early June

the pear tree interlaced
with walnut-sized fruit

come September after
birds and squirrels feast
we'll be lucky to find three

it's been a year since
democracy took a direct
hit of tear gas

the devil waved a bible
with a look of defiance

who is left to pray
