my neighbors vomit

my neighbor's vomit
I hear the liver cancer
her window to mine

I had a neighbor and we lived one in her trailer and me in mine. My wife lost to liver and breast cancer and I know what cancer does, you vomit. Robert Spiess said VOMIT was too strong, but he published it and it was selected as BEST OF ISSUE FOR A SENRYU in Modern Haiku. Robert Henry Poulin

    Thank You for the kudos, I had a big discussion with the Robert Spiess, the editor at the time, who also passed of cancer six months later, he said VOMIT WAS TOO STRONG A WORD FOR SENRYU, and I said, there is no other word for it, you VOMIT. He said OK, and the poem won best of issue. Life is a struggle, and every day is a gift to live it with mindfulness being aware many things are happening all at once everywhere. Love life. Live it. See it. Say it in poem. Bob,.. as you do so well.
