bioluminescence
I skip a pebble across
the universe

a halo around
the long night moon . . .
I find
another strand
of mother's light

frozen trough
I cup the warm breath
of my horse

1st Place, 2018 Sharpening the Green Pencil Haiku Contest

the ocean
was in a rage last night
but today,
these peace offerings
of blue mussels and kelp

transience . . .
petal by petal
we let go

Winning Haiku, 2017 Vancouver Cherry Blossom Haiku Contest

mute swans
under a moon bridge
the things
I should have confessed
make no difference now

1st Place, 2016 Fleeting Words Tanka Competition

fog deepens
the sound of rabbits
nibbling night

Grand Prize, 2016 World Haiku Competition

dried curls
of gray reindeer moss
crunch softly
underneath our boots . . .
no other sound, but breath

tracks of birds
meander through snow . . .
the surgeon
marks her left breast
with a cross

1st Place, 2016 British Haiku Society Tanka Awards

stone cairns
a faded cap drifts
downriver

1st Place, 2015 Harold G. Henderson Haiku Contest
