At tinywords today

My haiku is featured today at tinywords, which publishes one haiku per day.

Christmas eve --
the woman in the checkout line
blinking back tears

I witnessed this: a line in a grocery store, everyone buying last-minute items for holiday dinner, and I couldn't tell if her tears were for sadness or joy.
