Linda Chambers


hollow log
an old fox shares herself
with the crows
dry leaves---
blue heron nests dot
the cloudless sky
orange sunrise---
tree shadows
claw the earth
white crosses---
last year's apples
bob in the wind
yellow daffodils---
the sight of a gopher
laughing at death

Linda Chambers Linda Chambers lives in Northern Michigan with her husband, Jack. She has resided in Michigan for most of her life. She has loved reading Haiku for quite sometime. In March, she lost a young cousin to a hit and run accident. His funeral and events surrounding his death gave her the moments she needed to begin writing, and the writing, in turn, helped her to heal.
