Breath | Ellen Woods

five haiku

i.

up in the attic
I hammer my wild way out
sinking breath by breath

ii.

down the bannister
elephant smiles before me
blossoms in their trunks

iii.

releasing my debts
those heavy rocks I carry
freedom’s face appears

iv.

go down far enough
a foreign land emerges
original mind

v.

my thirst a mirage
at the well I need not drink
plum tree overhead
