in praise of small things

haiku by christopher anthony leibow

geese honking over head

geese
honking
overhead
the last
one
the

loudest

inside the church

inside the church
the parishioners miss
the Robin’s sermon

cooing baby

cooing baby -
how melancholy
the old bachelor

the snail

The snails horns wave.
So far to go.

Even for…

Even for the train
and it’s lonely conductor,
a rising moon.

star

for M

Staring out a window.
Thoughts of an old love
revived by a waning moon.

in the mist

In the mist
two women bathing.
Hazy moon.
