Four Haiku

turning the page
of an older book
the age in my hands

how still
the winter landscape
I whisper the Psalms

January thaw . . .
letting go
of old heartaches

folding laundry
stack of clean T shirts
the colors of Spring

Ellen Grace Olinger

“January thaw” was published in A Splash of Water: Haiku Society of America 2015 Members’ Anthology, edited by Catherine J.S. Lee.
