Issue 4 – Repp

John Repp

This and That Haiku

porcelain cup—
a friend’s book—
ten years!

          ~

barn-shadow on snow—
wild turkey wobbles
in cold wind

          ~

rake oak leaves
sopping from snow
fallen a week ago

          ~

green snake draped
on the step ignores
three spiders

          ~

tin sky, snow crystals,
sputtering candle—
day-long dusk

          ~

crow plucks a shred
of squirrel
then flaps off

          ~

gray face, brown gums—
the student grins
as she wheels in
