Blithe Spirit. Vol. 26, Number 1, February 2016

dawn walk
a fog sylph takes
her shape


gulls hunched
along the shoreline
more bad news


diurnal tides
the ebb and flow
of grief


Museum of Haiku Literature Award


And the winner of this quarter's Literature Award, because of its startling image and enduring challenge to one's thinking:

—Colin Blundell
