barge on the horizon

barge on the horizon . . .
       disappearing . . .
              the life I left

Time Of Singing (1997)

D. Claire Gallagher, Editor, selected this haiku for the Members’ Anthology 2000, Haiku Society of America.  The book is called Crinkled Sunshine.

I still love to watch the barges on Lake Michigan. Today we have a winter storm, yet we know there will be spring again. I remember writing this poem. I had to make some changes for health and family reasons. A beautiful new life slowly grew, from deeper roots. One day at a time. Over time. I am retired now. My overall goal with my blogs is to offer hope.
