in praise of small things

haiku by christopher anthony leibow

scattered by a dog

scattered by a dog
a pile of wet leaves
autumn cold

arguing

arguing
the buzzing street lamp
yellows their faces

early morning breast feeding

early morning breast feeding
mother and child fallen asleep
heavy snowfall

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.
