Waka Challenge Day 5

Our goal is to publish at least one waka a day from April 9 to May 9 in our second annual Waka Fest. Today's featured writer: Beth Lowell.

In Morristown -
A woman pulls over
and prays for the dead.
She scoops up the squirrel
and places him in leaves

My friend's dog
made friends with a groundhog.
Mine did not.
Hers is a world of Disney,
and mine of Tarantino.

Before the storm
my mother running
on the lawn
small shocks tickling as she ran

Clouds raced
across the winter sky
as branches knocked
against the window
of the silent house

one June evening
I remember
clinking ice
and a low slung moon

We hope you'll contribute a waka or two to our celebration. You can add it as a comment to this post on our web site, or email it to editor @
