haiku retrospective ccxxvii

veterans day
the children dye yarn
with koolaid

armistice day
a rainbow of wool drying
on the clothesline

feet to the fire
the old woman knits
new socks

turning the heel
those chilblained toes no longer need
any socks

winding yarn
do the poppies still bloom red
in flanders?
