A flurry of poems…

The fall issue of cattails is out at last. Due to a big switch around of editors, the September issue was delayed and is now published in December. What a big issue it is, full of so many poems to read. Many of my favorite poets are in this issue and there are some who are new to me still to be discovered.

I have two haiku included in this issue:

.

.

first blossoms –
I tell myself this year
will be different

.

.

 

daybreak …
the birds wake us
song by song

.

.

and a few senryu:

.

.

long yawns …
breathing in
his boredom

.

.

 

zafu zabuton zazen       zzzzz

 

.

.

plus one tanka:

 

.

.

long ago I heard
the sound of wuthering wind
blowing through the night –
a bleakness so forlorn,
a loneliness bereft of words   

.

.

My thanks to all the editors of cattails for their hard work. I cannot begin to imagine the number of hours it takes to put together something this substantial.
