5 Haiku – moments from my childhood

 

 

I think of Jake, our

ice cream man in white; when Good

Humor really was

 

 

lawn mowers, grass smells

mornings rich with Summer―time

to go out and play

 

 

behind the sofa

we explored; “hey, you have a

bone in there!” I said

 

 

I always wondered

where my mirror self went when

I went somewhere else

 

 

he grew small, cried in

my arms; a boy, my father

when he lost his mom

    Sad beyond measure…but…such a powerful image.

    I wonder about that mirror self too, how to find her so I can maybe get some answers….
