Three Winter Poems - Poem by Glen Kappy

from 'While Passing Through'/ Winter

I walk alone
in winter dusk.
Jet trails into sunset.


Navel Orange

I bite its rind
gouge it with my thumb, tear it
and it—gives fragrance.


Daddy Long Legs
perched in back room corner—
lonely trapper.

Topic(s) of this poem: lonely, orange, patience, scent, scents, sunset, violence, waiting, winter

Form: Haiku

    helen, thank you for your affirmative comment- especially since i was impressed by the haiku of yours i read. i find i identify with most of what i found. you appear to me to have the contemplative bent- the appreciation of quiet and self-observation- essential to haiku, as well as an excellent command of our common language. -glen kappy

    just read frost flowers. then i read haiku by adeline- i especially liked the first two of those. the second made me think of this poem of mine:

    Seated with coffee
    I try to gather myself
    as gray light
    seeps through blinds.

    Sometimes dawn
    comes too early.

    blessings fill and surround you!
