From the root-cellar
the last of the winter squash
still succulent,
the poem you wrote recalling
a grandmother’s hearty soup

Summer Haiku by Carol Purington – 2017

In June 2016, I reblogged a poem by Billie Wilson from Charlotte DiGregorio’s Writer’s Blog.  This is from her Daily Haiku ongoing series.  (Links go to Charlotte’s site for this note.)

Haiku for Holy Week by Carol Purington

In the pew
behind a wiggly boy
I praise the Son of Man

Cleaning my car…
the palm branch I folded
into a cross

Good Friday Service
a branch of pussywillows
throws spiky shadows

This dark Saturday –
those faithful women
who didn’t yet know

After sunrise
we notice field flowers
the way He did

Carol adds that the Good Friday haiku was published in these two places: The Haiku of North America 2001 Anthology, “Paperclips” and HAIKU: A Writer’s Guide to Haiku and Related Forms, Bruce Ross, 2002.
