in praise of small things

haiku by christopher anthony leibow

gust of wind

Gust of wind.
The snow’s silence broken
by the hermit’s wind bells.

the puppy barks

the puppy barks
at the puppet
half out of the box

dark winter sea

dark winter sea
the lonely ringing
of a buoy

the old man shovels snow

the old man
shoveling snow
black bird on a wire

fresh snow

fresh snow
making snow angels
my 46th birthday

trying to quit smoking

trying to quit smoking
i give away
my second pack today

traveling through falling snow

traveling through falling snow,
the same snow making her cheeks wet,

what rapture
