Under the Basho, 2018

Personal Best


transience . . .
petal by petal
we let go

Winning Haiku, Canada - 2017 Vancouver Cherry Blossom Haiku Invitational


Modern Haiku


soft rain
the lily and I with stars
in our throats


homeless
wet leaves seal the holes
in his boots


out-breath . . .
a sheet of glass falls
from my paddle


rush hour
the quiet helicopters
of maple seeds


rolling thunder
kiss-curls at the base
of your neck


office windows
the mountains will wait
for me


the blue eyes
of African daisies
how I miss you


pond ice
the things we lost
last summer


Hokku


early thaw
the morning chimes
of waxwings


hoodoo spires . . .
a buck's antlers tinged
with sunset


shell fragments
the chirps of otters
in the dark
