#PoetTues White Flag Haiku Poems

Long time no see in my poetry realm, I know, but here’s a set of haiku poems inspired by recent and not-so-recent life events.


Iron beside gold

Recedes into the background

Mere utility

Tried but unnoticed

You’re so-and-so’s sibling, right?


Behind the spotlight

Are shadow places where those

Like me work unseen

“I always win.”

You always do. Food for thought

A tough cut of truth

Competition? No

But maybe I didn’t know

Until I had lost

My local fifteen

Will come page two, column two
