Tessa Essex & Gary Grubbs: Wednesday Haiku, #107

 Antique cigar box

three years . . .
just the scent of his
cigar box is enough

These words
      Disappear too
Geese crossing
      The autumn sky

Geese Descending on the Koto Bridges by Suzuki Harunobu

old man's leisure--
this year's tobacco too
becomes smoke

all of an one here today...

since everything comes and goes
why waste a single moment fearing
death ?

this run today that you put out is
among your best
Pure Land / Zen

as this old recluse "gets it"

Beautiful evocations of loss, in which even an ellipsis has poignant significance.

Angele ... loss ... it seems to be the theme ... haiku perfectly captures.
