Not sure what to do
Too young for feeling ancient
Hot, laser-like pain

Hot Day in July

Old lady face on
Sweaty, red, oh so tired
Remember New York.

His Life

His life is not mine
Watching him flounder, painful
Motherhood is hard.

Travelling South

Leaving tomorrow
Suitcase still empty, unloved
Here comes the sun. Wow.

Time to Just Do It!

My work lies in wait.
Much to do but yes, there's time.
If only I'd start!

Home from Spain

Eyes darting, I search.
Airport gate thick with people
There he is! My son.

March 21

Random, small snowflakes
Grey sky, birds singing, cold air
March twenty-first: spring.

Warm, sunny, happy:
Spring! The wonder and the joy.
Will there be more snow?

Homeless in the Subway

Subway seat her bed.
Possessions clutched at her side.
How long will she sleep?

Once again, alive.
Why such all consuming fear?
Lightness of being.

Tomorrow's coming
See them in their underwear
Breathe deeply, fear not.

M. Died

M., suddenly gone
Harmonicas now silent
His sisters, bereft.

Black Boots

Black suede slouchy boots
Striding along like a girl
Retail therapy.

Hi Haiku

NewMe's haiku blog:
Strange, this need to speak to you
Making sense of life
