Monoku Monday 9/4/17…Revisiting the Harshness…#haiku #haibun #monoku

In Harshness

haibun poetry

In the crunch of fiberglass,
a shattered mirror dangling on a wire.

In the biting words of a text-message slap,

the piercing cold stare of an evaluator’s review.

In every word and action taken or not.

In every inch of fallen snow power-thrown before sunrise.


Not only in rippling lakes cold sunset
