#371 – 3 Haiku

3 Haiku


defeat comes quickly

like a hard right to the face

when my hands drop down




from the high branches

summertime felt endless and

my childhood safe




the minutes explode

frustrations of parenting

an angry teen girl

    All marvelous but I’ll home in on the one that means the most to me. Your second haiku speaks to a perpetual place of safety and security…themes that I visit over and over in my haiku. I’ve picked out five that illustrate the point — all center around a bed of grapevine where two friends and I spent hours and hours in the summer………….and the chinaberry tree in our back yard where I could hide from mother and read anything I wanted — not all the best literature!
