1.

her illness
beyond our care
winter birds


2.

explaining tanka
to my 5th grade class
a pivot
of laughter
from the hallway


3.

birthday morning
a brand new set
of aches


4.

winter stones
I hurl the last
of a gut bug


5.

city blizzard
the soup kitchen door
still warm


6.

bowling
with perfect form
on Nintendo
my grandfather's
arthritic hands


7.

tuition deadline
I stretch the hole
in my pocket


8.

deep winter
the green
of old bread


9.

donation jar
for orphan children
somewhere
my coins
in the shuffle


10.

CT scan
revealing nothing
winter sun


-complete-
This will be a series of haiku, senryu, tanka, and kyoka :heart:

It's a great tutorial to come and read your work, reminding me of what can be done with a few words. My favourites are 1, 2, 6, 7 and 8.

I love everything about this set.
How it moves between the inner life and interactions with the world.
