Haibun

It's hard to focus with all the me-toos and why-nows and didn't-tells and don't-believing going on.

Grabbing and catcalls
weigh you down, not a cat, not
yours, hear and react,

resist,
news obsessed,
bad news breaking,
harvesting
fears paralyze,
raining,
crashing,

shelter within, peace
washing, love counting, safety
now; you are here, calm,

secure in numbers,
sunlight,
strength.
