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
