A 3rd Helping of Haiku

This time it’s some of mine – you can find one of my haiku in Issue 2 of Notes from the Gean (and Issue 1 too actually)

And another in theAugust issue of World Haiku Review

I’m really happy to be in both of these publications – feels great to share the pages with such fine poets – if you jump over for a look you’ll see more work from Joseph Mueller, Lorin Ford, Graham Nunn, Rhonda Poholke and many others who I cannot recall right now…but have a look anyway!

Haiku from Issa’s Snail

Today I’m mirroring a post from kipple  – where I collected samples from some of the great poets contributing to the interactive renku site Issa’s Snail (see link to the right) I hope to present more soon!

two worn Oxfords
all that’s left of father
in the wardrobe

~

a heron’s meal
interrupted by
a teenage jet-ski

~

one strand
carries a spider
weightless

Joseph Mueller

.

trying her name
ending with his –
the pen runs dry

~

Christmas Eve –
stepping into
a stranger’s footprint

~

heat haze
she runs up waving
a fan shell

Sandra Simpson

.

rainforest –
should I listen to bellbirds
or the currawong?

~

the stray tomcat
tries a kitten’s voice –
winter dusk

~

winter fly –
my death poem
unwritten

Lorin Ford
