spent and spent again

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 6:29 pm



summer morning–
from out in the meadow
a pony nickers






school’s out–
we spend our dimes twelve ways
walking to the store






rumble of thunder-
slicing just-picked peaches
for the pie

“summer morning” & school’s out” from the haibun “Mourning Dove,” in Simply Haiku II:3 (2004)

“rumble of thunder” – Mayfly 33, cover of Mayfly 34 (2002)


“quotemarksLS” Haibun are short pieces of prose in combination with one or more

haiku or related poetry forms. Billie Wilson’s “Mourning Dove” is a

gentle remembrance of childhood wonders.
