geranium blooms freely
on your workshop stool

My haiku was also posted on March 29, 2015, as part of the Daily Haiku series at Charlotte Digregorio’s Writer’s Blog.

willows weep and yet
how strong the branches
that hold their tears


Deep calleth unto deep . . .*
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind


* from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV)
