Haiku ~ Patricia Prime


warm air alley  
searching through rubbish bins  
the bag lady  
  ploughed field
  at its furthest edge
red-hot pokers
over the paddock  
a trail of hoof prints -  
frosty morning  
  cattle stop
  the city girl breaks
  a shoe heel
visitors gone  
only the dishwasher's cycle  
& the windchimes
