Nora Wood, US
 

 

 

 

Haiku

 

skipping stones
father and son

the ripples

 

 

another spring
the empty seat
at the table

 

 

moonlight
afterward only silence
between us

 

 

shell held to my ear
a wave swells and rides
itself to shore

 

 

purling creek
a remembered lullaby
in the mother tongue

 

 

wind in the pinesdistant shakuhachi music

 

 

cold front
in the busker's case
five copper coins

 

 

breaking
the water basin ice

matins

 

 

taut plunk
of a cello string breaking

snowmelt

 

 

first tree buds
untuned piano music
from the old folks home
