1 – 6

Freya Pickard of Pure Haiku as selected one of my haiku for her Care series.


Solicitude comes
bearing gifts of soup and wine
scents of comfort merge
Merril D Smith 2017
Apparently Merril writes history and poetry and dances in the kitchen with her cats whilst blogging at Merril D Smith
A beautiful, olfactory haiku. I’m sorry, but I couldn’t help but choose today’s date, given Merril’s phrase “bearing gifts”!
This haiku is part of my CARE series.

    • Thanks, Carol. No, I don’t think I have a favorite. It just depends on my mood. I’m actually not all that fond of haiku. I think they’re very difficult to write, so I’m glad you liked this one. 🙂

  1. The gifts of warmth from soup and the heat in a sip of wine would definitely help with healing from a loss (or from illness), Merril.
    The scents would be wafting and combining their effects upon our bereaved souls.
