Senryu

camping alone

a deer tick on my back

just out of reach

(Highly Commended Fifth Annual H. Gene Murtha Senryu Contest)

 

turkey Vulture

an old woman’s shoulders

in the mirror

produce box

a banana spider

far from home

 

no-see-ums

the taste of roasted

marshmallows

 

telephone call

I put on my glasses

to sound smarter
