“A Few Haiku (9)”

(c) 2021 by Michael L. Utley


Chinese food is gone
I ate it all; you’ll have none
Zero-sum dim sum



There is never joy
In the dark night of the soul
I embrace the dawn



I still hear the sound
Of breezes in bamboo groves
When I think of you



Some days all I need
Is to watch the spotted cat
Chasing butterflies



It is my hope when
Kiku bloom in time to come
You’ll remember me



My old hoe is dull
And the weeds resist its blade
Still I toil on
