to the small poem and the quiet voice within

The abandoned building across the street the red lights

Falling snow how calm it is to view from my window

Winter I’m cold even under my blankets

They stay up all night talking of killing me

The whole night long that voice on the intercom

Waking up day after day the same walls

Gerald John Conforti

loneliness        sitting by a fire       that won’t stay lit

Stanford M. Forrester

fireworks i prefer the thumbnail moon

Scott Glander

through the day the time it takes

Robert Henry Poulin

    Since I have the copy you took the haiku from, I found it thought-provoking to see what you had chosen. Comparatively, your selections have depth.
