some haiku and a thought

It used to take a week for a simple hour to pass
Now it takes an hour for the week to become my past.

Water in a bowl
Magnifying the rocks beneath,
No lies are hidden.

Divorce is final
Like an amputated limb,
Love stains forever.

With every Fall
Family expectations
The same leaves let go.

A fish and a boot
Sharing the same currents
Sibling memories

Water art, with hues
So subtle and transparent;
The ocean of tea.
