Haiku--By Chen-ou Liu--Canada

young widow
sunflowers wilting
in her garden

crow after crow ...
what remains
of this harvest moon ?

last leaves
cling to a maple tree ...
another temp job

first day of winter...
morning fog binds together
the red and blue states

another new grave
in winter mist
war cemetery
