Poetry Moments--By Marilyn Ward--United Kingdom

frost moon
it's glowing behind
the steel plant

train window
i read the news
in reverse 
____________

through the window
it waves at me
the last rhuss leaf
____________

snowdrift
the child steps
into daddy's shoe prints

  1. Dear Marilyn,
    With these haiku I'm reminded that poetry pictures life.
    And you have truly excelled in conveying that truth!
    Thank you,

  5. Dear Marilyn, I enjoyed these Haiku Poetry Moments.
    I like them all but was very tickled with the last
    one. Snowdrift, the child steps, into daddy's shoe
    prints. Very good writing.
