April Haiku 2020

scavenged clean by dogs
warm ramen in our stomachs
and our memories
five inches of snow
delivery drivers cry
our apology
caution: student driver
prepping for the license test
pets heed the warning
Coronavirus
litter changed more frequently
days blend together
sleeping on mommy
quarantine keeps us all home
sleeping on daddy
please in sign language
unable to understand
I watch his heart break
breathing salty steam
five inches of snow melting
we hardly knew you
plastic yellow kids
patches of dandelions
bloom at the same time
mastering running
ripe with risks and challenges
empty parking lot
during quarantine
no shortage of vacations
travel to my past
eyes stinging with sand
her dirty dress matters not
claustrophobia
