Haiku by M.J. Iuppa

Blowzy white globes
glow on twilight’s lawn.
Summer’s constellations.

Gold sleigh bells hang
Over the fireplace mantle
A garland of sound

Old sled, sentinel
by the entrance– snow covered boots
stop there, dripping

Warm July night
fireflies flicker in woods
minor constellations

Floating aimlessly
inside a tear
Lost eyelash

Campfire stirred by
whispered ghost stories~
embers glow, brighter.
