    all day long
I feel its weight
the unworn necklace

waiting room–
the ex-wife
looks past me

………………. by Roberta Beary, from A New Resonance 2: Emerging Voices in English-Language Haiku (Edited by Jim Kacian and Dee Evetts, Red Moon Press, 2001) Credits: both haiku originally published in Pocket Change.

beary It’s a very good bet that Roberta Beary would prefer to see her poetry, rather than her bio (or photo), posted here. You’ll find a short biography at her World Haiku Assoc. page. Roberta has been practicing law for about 25 years and writing haiku since the early ’90s. Thanks to Red Moon Press for spotlighting her clear, distinct “emerging voice” and special thanks to Roberta for sharing that voice with us.
