Spring cleaning

cleaning her closet
the woman finds a moth
airing her linens


Sleeping Kitten

oh, that silly kitten
curled up asleep
on my rising dough

(Yes, this did happen years ago. Sitting in a warm place, the dough must have felt soft and inviting — at least it was covered with a clean cloth. Cats can fall asleep anywhere!)

The Accident

Looking-Out-My-Window Haiku #2

strange car in our drive
oh, but I’ve forgotten
the accident

My husband had an impromptu meeting with a semi a week ago on an icy winter road. Thankfully he emerged unscathed but our car, sort of sideswiped, was seriously dimpled after. Our dear children have lent us their van until the affair is settled, but we may be going car shopping this week. Alas! Absent-minded, I keep expecting to see our little blue Elantra parked there.
