looking at trees
I remember prayers
of friends

Published first here at Poems From Psalms And Nature on May 16, 2012.

Karl and I reprinted the poem in Quiet Christmas Poetry (2014).

Then my haiku was reprinted in this book:

The Helping Hand Haiku Anthology (Including Senryu, Tanka, and Haiga). Edited by Robert Epstein (2020, Middle Island Press).

I am grateful to see how a poem can last, be read again, and shared in new ways.
