Brown / Water

A brown coat hangs in
A dark closet absorbing
Dust. Will water help

Or steam or fire? He
Looks at her with all the words
In his eyes. She hears

And cries into the
Soil. She thinks it will cleanse it
Somehow some way. When?


I will have to back into the brevity of a haiku so here are three for the Writing 201 haiku/water assignment. The featured image is “The Crying Spider” by Odilon Redon painted in 1881. Works by Redon (1840-1916) are in the public domain
