haiku--By Chen-ou Liu--Canada

alone
in a creaking bed
motel night
---
a doll house
sketched on the driveway ...
tilted foreclosure sign
---
a one-armed man
alone with the winter wind ...
war cemetery
---
a white feather
blowing on the barbed wire
youth detention center
---
model home
a spider weaving
summer clouds              

Chen-ou Liu lives in Ajax, Ontario, Canada. He is the author of five books, including Following the Moon to the Maple Land (First Prize, 2011 Haiku Pix Chapbook Contest) and A Life in Transition and Translation (Honorable Mention, 2014 Turtle Light Press Biennial Haiku Chapbook Competition), His tanka and haiku have been honored with many awards.
