Coronahaiku Sequence






wiping handles & surfaces

to protect myself

from myself

* * *

a pair of magpies

a pair of collared doves

in separate trees

* * *

empty city street

they walk hand in gloved hand

two young men

* * *

daffodils pulled up

by kids in the local park –

I rescue the strongest

* * *

 virtual singing session –

we’ll meet again

don’t know where, don’t know when
