Haiku Perspectives

1. Adult

Being an adult

Means three a.m. smoke alarms…

Bitterly awake.

2. Heritage

Red tomato stains,

The taste of rosemary bread,

Rooftop stargazing.

3. Her

Curly hair, braided.

She swallows words and distills

Memories like tea.

4. Crowd

People trudge along.

Ephemeral eye contact.

Seen, then forgotten.
