I’m so honored that a haiku sequence I wrote during the first month of the Covid-19 lockdown here in Massachusetts was published in the June 2020 issue of Boston Literary Magazine. I don’t submit my work very often so this was particularly meaningful. The entire issue is fabulous and I highly recommend reading it cover to cover.

A Mother’s Tale
Elizabeth Lorayne

Morning approaches
Hands intertwined we mix dough
Together we rise
–––
On our backs we paint
Observing sunlight breach clouds
Our homeschooling break
–––
Head to head we read
Our breathing harmonizes
This mother’s love song
