“absence” by Jane Beal

My haiku sequence, “absence” now appears in Frogpond: The Journal of the Haiku Society of America 42.1 (2019): 69.

absence

my father gathers
blackberries from thick brambles –
old hands scratched by thorns

we watched the sunset
by the sea at summer’s end –
now, rain is falling

white hospital room
with no view from the window –
the last time I saw him
