cross-stitch from the
grandmother I didn’t meet:
“Put the coffee on”
My poem was published first in Parnassus Literary Journal (2004); and then reprinted as part of my page, Ellen Olinger – Three Questions, a haiku series edited by Curtis Dunlap.
This haiku was also posted on March 29, 2015, as part of the Daily Haiku series at Charlotte Digregorio’s Writer’s Blog.
Poems have their own paths . . . and times.
