Windy Twilight Haiku

Two Hundred and Nineteenth Entry, Coronavirus Poetry Diary

in windy twilight
a blackbird rising, falling ..
this pandemic life

AddedTwo Hundred and Twentieth Entry

pink-streaked sky
fades from her bouncy castle
shelter in place

stranded whales
seen from my quarantine room
cumulus clouds

AddedTwo Hundred and Twenty-Second Entry

no strings attached
to vaccine donations ...
a spiderweb hangs
in the ceiling corner
of a UN-sponsored food bank
