the pear tree’s
Author’s Notes: In the Texas Hill Country, our winters are normally mild. February is a month of hesitancy. It’s not yet spring, but winter is winding down. Pear trees reach out with tenuous buds into cold air stitched with a thread of warm – like a child reaching one toe into a swimming pool.
This haiku was published in 2013 in Dos Gatos Press’ anthology, Lifting the Sky: Southwestern Haiku & Haiga.
Sally's first publication for children is "Where's My Hug?" a lift-the-flap board book published by WorthyKids/Ideals. Buy it for a child you love.
