Linked Haiku
By Martin Willitts Jr


cherry blossoms —
the absoluteness of dawn —
rivers to my heart.


Pink rose-light breaks,
pink anomies of five clouds,
calls to our skin: here!


A sweet-edged joy —
gladiolus — pink-yellow
tissues of our love.


Seedlings tell us
to plant them for much later
in memory-house.
