Haiku 868, Haiku 869, Haiku 870, Haiku 871

From the poetry collection published in 2021 containing poems written in 2020, The Immediate and No Sooner.

Haiku 868

the doctor mumbles
generic commentary
at my aching knee

Haiku 869

ill at ease seascape
this wintry beach that shivers
smudges of gray waves

Haiku 870

the red spatula
ministers to the onions
frying in the pan

Haiku 871

the hand reaches out
the obsidian shard cuts
the sun shines down hard
