An octet of haiku

1. Chemo brain haiku:

a midnight obsession with

counting syllables.

2. Cool breeze caresses,

wafting thoughts pass through my mind:

a spiraling leaf.

3. The road whines louder.

People want normal again

but normal is gone.

4. Fantasy road trip:

the pop up yellow camper

California bound

5. Basin and range and

Sierras beckon but my

sisters say not now

6. She sent me photos

Venice pigeons on my head—

she is letting go

7. A rush and a bloom

Night owl hoots. Mice scamper.

Pink brain orgasm

8. What if you don’t know

whether this is the last time?

See it; savor it.
