looking to the stars
Frank Tassone’s #Haikai Challenge 124 – Martha Magenta Tribute asks us to write a poem that honors the spirit of a haiku by Martha Magenta. My senryū is inspired by:
night watch . . .
I follow her gaze
to the stars
From her Poet Profile at The Haiku Foundation:
“Martha was in a hospice for the last week of her life and was well looked after – her son was with her at the end. She passed away on January 14, 2020.”
I realize my words pale in comparison to hers, which are a fitting tribute to one who is no longer with us.
