Poems: Haiku by Beki Reese

7 Haikus
By: Beki Reese

For Caleb

silent monitor-

every unbreath whispers
"he is gone"


in my neighbor's window
-strawberry moon


down a gravel road
my shadow and myself
exchange greetings


morning cloud cover
filters sunlight into gray
- even birds are still.


Wild geese flying south;
shadows that cross the moonlight
cross the water, too.


Deep ocean silence:
black sea and starless sky
become one.


In Memory of Emperor Hirohito

Outside the palace,
in a sea of umbrellas,
one hatless mourner.
