Saying goodbye to winter

closeup photo of a hole on the bark of a tree

Guttural visage
showing signs of wear and tear
defrosting souls spring

In time

a tree bark and branches without

Seasonal baldness,
cold spine, weak limbs, comes to all,
trees age gracefully.

Inner workings of my heater. This is what happens when you’re locked down in winter.

Look deep within, see,
tiny springs bind us as one,
one breaks, we all do.

Apparently, Shakespeare wrote King Lear in lockdown. I can only write mediocre haiku. Stay safe, folks. đź––

Live imperfectly
yet perfectly flaunt yourself,
apple of my eye.

Caffeine therapy

Bubbling to the top,
hot fury as frothy milk,
tamed by strong coffee.
