Hope

hopeM&M’s

Hungry hand grasping.

An empty bag! Maybe one

rolled under the couch?

 

Ultrasound

Shaved belly, clear gel

a cold lobby filled with pets

I wait for results

 

45

Each morning I wake

and check Twitter for news of

hard-earned indictment

 

Woodpecker

Mr. Pileated

drums on the empty feeder

his wishes made clear

 

Exhausted

world peace, food for all

sometimes all I can hope for

is a sunny day

*7/23/17 prompt: haiku, theme of Hope
