In Loving Memory – Three Haiku

Haiku Art Site 2012 - 2017

These are haiku for my mother, Enola M. Borgh (1917 – 2004).  She would be so happy to know I am using my teaching gifts again at The Haiku Foundation.  She also volunteered after she retired; she taught English as a second language and worked at a nursing home.

gentle spring winds
in evergreen trees
the friendship we grew

Mother’s Day
sorrow has become
stars

forget-me-nots
bloom everywhere
love endures

Quiet Christmas Poetry

*
A summer poem:

early hours
of quiet and poetry
gardens overflow
and if some winter
my mind forgets
my heart will know

*
days grow shorter
I wait a longer time
for the light
as I pray each morning
and the light arrives . . .
