Aubrie Cox, US
 

 

 

 

Haiku

 

cicadas' whine
summer sinking
deep in my bones

 

 

slow lunch hour
the owners speak
in their native tongue

 

 

rowing
oars in and out
of the mist

 

 

rickety treehouse ladder
parents fighting
down below

 

 

late summer night
i trip over that same
bump in the sidewalk

 

 

backyard sprinkler
a leaf spirals
into late summer

 

 

autumn chill
I drive past
my old stalker

 

 

horse chestnuts
she says she'll try
to forgive me

 

 

in the corner booth
so much to say
my tea lukewarm

 

 

paper crane silhouette
on the shoji screen—
child's cough

 

 

sudden downpour
all the poets
write faster

 

 

sunbaked gravestone
a drop of sake
evaporates

 

 

out of
the snowstorm—
a grey heron

 

 

wet hair
smell of baked apples
from the kitchen
