Just past sunrise . . . 4 small poems

Two of my haiku and two tanka were published in Blithe Spirit, Journal of the British Haiku Society, Volume 27, No. 2, 2017:

autumn morning—

sweeping away all

that drifts inside

 

 

washed up

in the sudden flood –

a baby’s shoe

 

 

just past sunrise

a single scull

glides down the river. . .

a flash of what it was

to be young

 

 

the tight cord slaps

against the flagpole

all night long

I dream of a father

who used few words

 

 

My thanks to Shrikaanth Krishnamurthy, the editor of Blithe Spirit, for selecting these four poems for publication.
