HAIKU

Deborah P. Kolodji

 

marina sunset
an osprey nest rocks
with the current
 
   
  salad sprinkled
with pomegranate seeds--
the long winter
   
winter geese
our daughters returning
from college
 
   
  uncarved pumpkins--
the pregnant woman
strokes her belly
 
white roses
my friend whispers
her daughter's name
