Andrew Grossman: Haiku

barbecue heat waves  
rising to the branch,  
half-yellow leaves not enough rain
  to wash my hand prints
  off the squash
red berries;  
groups of hikers backed up  
under Judd’s Bridge sky, to forgive you
  for all the snow, I lie here
  imagining the moon
red kite,  
the sound of your fabric  
in the tree  

Andrew Grossman, a resident of Williamsburg, Virginia, began the poetry database at Poetic Copy to realize his goal of using poetry to communicate understanding, peace and caring among people of different religious, cultural and lifestyle beliefs. The unity between humanity and nature is for him the template for creating unity among all humanity.

His poetry has been published in Altadena Review, Ariel, Connecticut River Review, Ball State University Forum, Monocacy Valley Review, Soundings East, Visions, and Whetstone. In addition to Poetic Copy, Grossman is the founder of Cartoon Resource.
