Two Micro-Poems


morning lizard
only one of us
does our pushups




counting my blessings

once again
I neglect the raven

with a thing or two
to say
outside my window



—Poems appear here with author’s permission from his Facebook page: “morning lizard” (senryu, 28 April 2019) and “counting my blessings” (cherita, 7 April 2019).
