Lenard D. Moore: 5 Haiku

4 March 2009




red dust-- a little boy sprints the bases between innings
new century-- the neighbor's rusty car still on blocks
misty river-- the drone of the drawbridge still in my ears
autumn sunset hospital helicopter rises from the heliport
spring moon I bend to touch my daughter's name on the tombstone
