Three Haiku
Gary Busha


Stop the self pity
Everybody has problems
Yours are not that bad

Another lucky day
with so many doors to open
and doors to close

When life is too much
think about all the good you have
and how you got it

Gary Busha is a Wisconsin native who likes that state’s changing seasons. His poetry — lean and plain-spoken, with themes of nature and lament — is strongly influenced by his good fortune in having grown up on Lake Winnebago. A poetry chapbook publisher for many years, Gary has three chapbooks of his own, and he has recently finished 12 pocket-sized mini-series of haiku. See for details
