(Nancy May)

 

 

Ten Haiku

 

 

Dementia’s end

fresh lilies arrive at the

nursing home

 

 

Forest fires

all my dreams have

abandoned me

 

 

Early symptoms

small black clouds spoil

blue skies

 

 

Blue butterflies

several months my

depression lasts

 

 

Starlight

our memories last

an eternity

 

 

Snow blizzard

I do not know where

my life is heading

 

 

Solar system

all my thoughts have

infinite desires

 

 

Winter solstice

I celebrate my 70 th

birthday

 

 

Meandering river

my life's direction

always changing

 

I place a rose

on your grave

memories
