December Haiku Share

And yet another haiku I wrote as part of a rengay, this one with Kirsten Cliff. As I currently live in “the City of Roses”, I would be totally remiss if I didn’t include at least one haiku that mentions roses, even though blooming roses right now are but a distant memory. Share a haiku/tanka/haiga about roses, any kind of flower, or  a pleasant scent.

December Haiku Share

This haiku appeared in a rengay I wrote over the summer, with Angela Terry and Julie Warther. It very closely reflects my life right now, as my youngest child puts the finishing touches on his college applications. Share a haiku about college, leaving home, autumn color, autumn in general, color in general, empty nests, or coffee. Or even tables.
