loneliness
lies within the listener—
a cuckoo’s call

within each heart
the cuckoo’s call brings
it’s own solitude

My Favorite Haiku # 3

Carpe Diem My favorite haiku by … #3
I’ve been thinking about summer’s end and so I chose this simple yet vivid haiku filled with color and meaning by Margaret Chula

end of summer
the rust on my scissors
smells of marigolds

— Margaret Chula, from her 2004 collection

early autumn
my garden gloves still tinged
with rosemary
