looking at trees
I remember prayers
of friends

My haiku was published here on May 16, 2012. Reprinted in the book, The Helping Hand Haiku Anthology (Including Senryu, Tanka, and Haiga). Edited by Robert Epstein (2020, Middle Island Press). Karl and I also reprinted the poem in Quiet Christmas Poetry (2014).
