HAIKU

Andrew Riutta

 

a soldier's burial---
the first leaves to fall
still green
 
   
  the slow ferment
of a darker beer---
summer solstice
   
countless stars---
my daughter paints herself
alone
 
   
  infinite stars---
a brown toad rests
at the doorstep
 
fall colors---
the distant asylum
black and white
 
   

Andrew Riutta My name is Andrew Riutta. I live in Traverse City, Michigan, along with my wife Lori and my three year old daughter, Issabella. I've been writing now for a little over twelve years.
