Maria Tirenescu's haiku is My Editor's Choice for this issue:


On the beach—
two lovers looking
for the new moon

Here are a few haiku that stood out:

the distant past—
footprints in the bedrock
washed by waves

# 08. John Daleiden, US



a boy catching fish
with his gaze

# 12. Djurdja Vukelic-Rozic, CR



breaker wave
a sand crab escapes
from the child's bucket

# 17. Jacek Margolak, PL



beach bonfire...
nothing left between
the moon and me

# 41. Chen-ou Liu, CA



bare footed
I stand on the shore—
sizzling hot sun

almost sixty—
the beach pebbles larger
than I remember

# 49. Richard Stevenson, CA



rays of sunshine
shimmering on the sea:
a regatta

# 51. Keith A. Simmonds, TT



after after grad—
a bassett drags his balls
along the beach

# 57. Richard Stevenson, CA



Early in the morning—
a seagull soars
above the Black Sea
