HAIKU

Nora Wood

 

first frost—
the young man's voice cracks
for the first time
 
   
  dying spring light—
her last breath fades
from the mirror
   
harvest moon—
dry cornstalks rattle
in the field
 
   
  first day of school—
touching the scar where
she cut her first tooth
 
Easter Sunday—
finding in the bush
last year's egg
