Failed Haiku
 
1
Blank page on my laptop
A tree still waiting for leaves
 
2
A hazy childhood memory
The dense, swirling fog 
in which a killer might lurk
 
3
Passing clouds 
cast fugitive shadows 
over a hayfield
Lines for a poem
that vanish on waking
 
4
Bright red patches 
on the wings of blackbirds 
Christ’s wounds
 
5
Your inner child
A figure pursued across the ice
