Tyrant

you hold me with fear
branches claw and creak, brittle
as their leaves fall, dead

(Easing in again with a slice of haiku)

The birds and I
chirp with glee at your return,
brilliant as the sun.

Dear Rachel,

This is a powerful haiku, the message
is very strong. For me, a womman held
captive in a smothering love. Brava.
