fingertips sculpt skin
healing cracks and callouses
with a caring heart
© Kim M Russell 2017

Here is the second haiku from our featured haiku writer this week! Kim Russell also writes children’s stories and poetry at Writing in North Norfolk

This haiku stood out to me because initially I thought she was writing about a sculptor but by the end of the haiku I realised she was writing about healing.
This haiku is part of my CARE series.

Turn the page gently
Peruse the words of my heart
I call across time

Merril studies history, writes poetry, and dances with her cats—sometimes at the same time. Read more of her work at Yesterday and Today: Merril’s Historical Musings.
I liked the tender feelings and the nostalgia that came through this haiku; a letter? a diary?
This haiku is part of my LEAF series.

almost heart-shaped, green
jagged edges, crinkled leaf
grows any which way

soft dove-grey rainclouds
mute brightness, refract sunlight
yet still my heart hopes
