Poetry from J.D. Nelson

Five Haiku 

this is not a drill
evacuate building 3


appointment canceled
I wake up to a white sky
& hidden foothills


showertime prayers
thanksgiving for my rescue
from the hot water


spring’s first honeybee
in the blossoming fruit trees
my old neighborhood


above the foothills
a white duck without a bill
sits in the blue sky
