HAIKU

Ian Marshall

 

Leaky faucet
all night long
the sound of water
 
 
Commercial break
my son calls me outside
to see the new moon
   
Years later
her notes in the margin
A Tale of Two Cities
 
 

Running up the sand
the surf|
running up the sand
 
Gathering our footprints
the wave returns
to the sea
