“night at the shelter” – Haiku / Senryu

women chattering
like school girls after lights out
night at the shelter
night at the shelter
safe space to be warm; outside
the chill of winter

“tree shadows ground grass” – Autumn frost haiku

tree shadows ground grass
mordant morning light etching
patterns in the frost
I am revisiting the conceit of this haiku. Here are my first attempts from all the way back in 2010. I think I have a better idea of the etching process now. “Thanks, Wikipedia! Love, a librarian.”
