Haiku--By Ronald Grognet--United States

family
back from vacation--
lost no more
_______________

strange experience
planning his day--
methadone
_______________

summer break--
I find the assignment
the dog ate
_______________

roof icicles
day by day--
swords
_______________

a ferris wheel high --
amidst the stars
one for her finger
_______________

Ronald Grognet is a retired Clinical Psychologist who practiced private individual and family therapy for thirty-five years. He lived and worked in Washington D.C., and Sarasota, FL before retiring in New Orleans to be close to his grandsons. Besides his volunteer time spent on disaster assignments for the Red Cross, he fills his time devoted to haiku poetry. His interest in poetry came as a gift in retirement. Reading an article about haiku filled with many examples, he recognized its similarity to the reflective stance of the meditation he practiced for many years. He has vigorously pursued its study for the last two years, personally experiencing its healing and enlightening qualities.
