Haiku
 

 

 

 

Elizabeth Howard

 

fireflies rise
across the dark expanse
a blanket of stars

 

 

desk drawer
a pink jellybean
melted in the corner

 

 

woodpecker rapping
a mailbox of offers
I can't refuse

 

 

Karina Klesko

Wind Haiku

 

march wind
a weeks severance pay
and a paper shamrock

 

 

snoring all night
a gust of wind unlatches
the cabin door

 

 

windy day
the empty canoe glides
across the lake

 

 

Haiku

Andreas Gripp

Full moon
free of clouds
Crescendo of crickets

 

 

Slumbering forest
cloaked in snowfall
The sound of snapping twigs

 

 

Dawn's dew
beads on blossoms
Hummingbird hovers

 

*from Beads on Blossoms. Andreas Gripp. Canada: Harmonia Press. March 2008.

 

 

Haiku Sequence

Vasile Moldovan, RO

Uncertain Season

Uncertain season
through the ice pellicles
the frogs' rut

Shipwreck on the shore

thousands of tadpoles playing
hide and seek

Leafing overnight
the poplar trees on the bank...
so many tree frogs

A little pigeon
escaped from the winter lap

the spring itself

Calligraphy...
on the telegraph wires
lined up the swallows

Chiromancy...
What could this ant read
out of your life line?

The church bell tower

a blue butterfly asks us:
how late is it?

Between sky and earth
a pathway for ants:
the wooden cross

Lone in the spring rain...
on the umbrella's handle
a lady bird
