Eighty-one; homemade books

In honor of my father's birthday:

eighty-one,

my father building 
new closet shelves,
once more rearranging
the deepening layers

Simply Haiku, Spring 2008; Take Five, Vol. 1

homemade books—
You can be a writer
my dad once said
though hoping, I suspect,
I'd do something sensible

Simply Haiku, Spring 2008


Over the past couple of years, he's spoken again of building shelves. I don't get it. And this time, I can't see him getting around to it.

  1. I really like both of these, especialy the layers in the first one. What could be more sensible than writing?
