Haiku ~ Liz Chen Frech

 

homeless...  
steely browns  
dusty paintbrushes in hand  
  emerging
  through the sinewy oak trees
  white roses
lightless...  
slickened rural roads  
driving by Braille  
  steaming brown rice...
  my Chinese father
  wrinkling his nose
Fidgeting--  
the man swallowed up  
by the great green umbrella
