The Crab

Side-stepping slyly
with pincers ready, Cancer
the crab closes in.
© E Leaper 2016

Elizabeth Leaper has appeared many times on Pure Haiku. She introduced us to the poetical form of Elfje, has a loom for weaving and also gathers words at her current blog The Wobbly Dum Dum Tree

I chose this haiku because it made me think of when I finally found out there was something wrong… Without warning, my stomach and abdomen swelled up for no reason…
