Haiku ~ Mary Rand Hess

Palms turned up  
holding me like a mother,  
the roots of a Maple Toes cracking––
  in silence the sound
  of you coming near
Piano keys  
slightly warped  
a baby grand of memories Lilies
  on my vanity––the color
  of anti-aging cream
The writing life:  
coffee, pens, notes, insanity  
a break in the wind chimes  

Mary Rand Hess lives in Northern Virginia and is blessed with a supportive husband and two gregarious sons. She is a writer of poetry, fiction, children's stories, and screenplays. She believes what yoga can do for the body, haiku can do for the soul.
