planting marigolds
new leaves on the red oak
shade the family plot



a gull squawks
the beggar shooed away
from his bed of grass



his attic room:
an autumn moon
in the cracked mirror



evening shadows
a squirrel buries acorns
under the bramble



penny in hand
waiting for the north ferry

a taste of salt





About Marion Alice Poirier, US


Marion Alice Poirier, US: I am a retired administrative assistant for the Boston Public Schools and I have lived in Boston, MA all my life. I have been writing mainstream poetry for about thirty years and have a collection of a hundred poems in its final stages for publication. There are about a dozen haiku in the collection. I became interested in haiku about twelve years ago but have only began to submit haiku to journals recently.

When I was a member of the Fort Worth Haiku Society 1992 -1995,
I won many awards for haiku and tanka published in their monthly
newsletter. I am presently devoting all my spare time to reading
and writing haiku and mentoring other haiku students.
