Haiku from J.D. Nelson

on this extra day
the hen leaps down & loses
one of her toenails


the first day of March
spaghetti marinara
& a banana


last week of winter
first time I've seen my nephew
in almost a year

  1. I like the elegance of how you have used the 575 structure without it seeming forced and the conversational tone, too.
