rainy autumn Friday

a flash of golden light
as the day nears it end
takes some of the heft

from her grey cloud
of despondency

November cold snap

an uninvited visitor
takes up residence

is it possible to ignore
this daddy's long legs
for the next six months

Haiku Sticky #524

no longer able
to banish daddy long-legs

lapsed, now atheist
guest at a church service

the words basically the same

new is an option
for receiving the Lord's Supper

the battered dresser
in the secondhand shop

--with a stuttering slide
the drawer closes on a
grandmother long gone

autumn pears

their shapes
unapologetically zaftig

it's hard not
to succumb to purchasing
more than one
