evanescent : tending to vanish like vapor
she is eternal
and she is evanescent
a woman pulls weeds
haiku 1011 : 6/9/22
burgle : to break into and steal from (a home, business, etc.)
the bathtub’s gurgle
carried off with all the rest –
that epic burgle
haiku 1012 : 6/12/22
panacea : a remedy for all ills or difficulties
did present itself but oh!
what an aftertaste
haiku 1013 : 6/13/22
