Senryu and Haiku


lunar eclipse
my wife and baby
breast feeding


more aspirin
the shoveled snow
melts


low cell charge
our argument suddenly
            ends


late bloomers
twisted foliage below
tulip heads


crabapple blossoms
our son searches the front yard
for something stinky


salmon sky
two empty car seats
behind me
