Small Town Haiku

Small Town Haiku

 

down Maple Street

next door to the library—

the gingko tree

*****

by Lori Lipsky

I grew up in a small town, on Maple Avenue. Down on the other end of the block was the library, and next door (you guessed it), the town’s only gingko tree. Our class once took a walking field trip to see the tree and learn about it.

Another small town poem of mine appears at the Barn Door. Your comments there are much appreciated. Thank you for reading. Lori

shades of autumn

footpaths glittered with gold
