House Arrest

She

Got married

In the throes of hope

Over the years she’s wondered

Why

He

Keeps changing

Goes from man to beast

In less than sixty seconds

Grim

Can’t

Leave him now

Assets co-mingled

And too old to start over

Sad

Haiku 9/7/22

Lone dried leaf in dirt

Short grass filled with brown sparrows

Late summer sun hides

Winter Palace

Nest

Needs repair

Squirrels are busy

Carrying leaves through the trees

Build

Soon

Frost will come

And the winds with it

Yet all shall be warm and dry

Safe

Diffurence

Cat

Stirs at dawn

Sees empty food dish

Sleeping human must waken

Now

Dog

Rolls over

The bed is comfy

A great place to dream of food

Uncorked

Wine

Her escape

Troubles disappear

Laughter makes her feel better

Free

Home

Her prison

Every room a cell

Marriage a life-long sentence

Jail

Choose

Life or death

She must find her strength

Heading down to the cellar

Wine
