Selected Haiku

Alicia Kelly


shattered picture frame
yet so perfect
her mother's face

up and down
in and out
Grandma knits a scarf

jumps and twirls
the couple glides
across the ice—in touch


strike one, strike two.
good luck once again
in his old man's baseball glove

my uncle asleep
chin to chest
too much turkey


cold wind blowing
through the empty playground
no child's voice heard
