Seasonal greetings

Warm Christmas:
In amongst the pigeons
White seagulls

Like autumn leaves
The woman beneath the bridge

  1. Presuming that the woman of the second verse is a homeless person rather than a ghost, I feel the poignancy of uncertainty and your concern for her – rather in the vein of the well-known Basho ‘I wonder how my neighbour fares’ haiku. You have beautifully captured the essence of another natural seasonal cycle.

  2. In pocket
    the last coin –
    silver cold
