In Loving Memory – Three Haiku

100_8180 (2)

These are haiku for my mother, Enola M. Borgh (1917 – 2004).  She would be so happy to know I am using my teaching gifts again at The Haiku Foundation.  She also volunteered after she retired; she taught English as a second language and worked at a nursing home.


gentle spring winds
in evergreen trees
the friendship we grew

Mother’s Day
sorrow has become

bloom everywhere
love endures
