Daily extraordinary: five haiku by Faye Brinsmead

Rush hour cancelled
only a learner driver
tense white face

Attention span
seventeen syllables

Abandoned offices
more and more birds
join the conference call

Masked chef’s gloves
offer steaming soba
my gratitude bows

Foolish to be lulled
by fine autumn rain?
I’m a fool, then…
