Nature unchained

By Emma Geller


the cat wanders by—
finds the end of her nine lives, 
in sticky sidewalks long empty.


the coyote howls
in the pale desert sand,
the wise man does too.


the moon wails to the sea,
a pearled old longing,
in their hug, they form the tide. 


she walks alone, away—
splitting the highway,
the deer lay.


cherry blossoms rain
on her grave, springtime’s 
veil turning—into garlands. 

Emma Geller  is a young poet from Boston, MA. She is endlessly inspired by the natural world and is thrilled that her haiku collection has found a new home online.
