Haiku Monday: New Yorker Covers

The host is the inestimable Fishy at her pond, and the theme -- with a wonderful accompanying write-up -- is New Yorker covers.

Smoldering island's
Ashen past; dreams wintering,

Seasons go and stop—
In the black strip ’tween Mom’s grin
And child’s pigtailed angst

I actually like the 2nd one. "In the black strip ’tween Mom’s grinAnd child’s pigtailed angst" is really good.

Buzz: Thanks for stopping by. I liked it, too. Fishy, I've come to find out, went with the distaff side.
