Water haiku (three poems)

The September issue of Brass Bell, curated by Zee Zehava, had a prompt/theme of “water.” I was fortunate to have three haiku selected for publication (two one liners and one traditional three line haiku). I hope you will visit the site for Brass Bell and enjoy all the excellent haiku written to this theme. The link is given below.

 

her waters broken the beginning of the beginning

 

 

what was hidden now emerges water lillies

 

 

near the cattails —
two white egrets
lost in reflection

Some colorful and ‘edible’ haiku

An online haiku journal I love is brass bell: a haiku journal. It is curated by Zee Zehava, herself an excellent haiku poet and teacher. This journal sends out a “theme” for the month’s submissions, and the results are always a delight to read. Recently I had several haiku appear under two different themes.

brass bell: a haiku journal, May 2017
Theme: Colorful Haiku

 

 

children now gone 
no red wagon 
to break the fog

 

flashes of azure wings
two bluebirds wake
the grey morning

 

 

brass bell: a haiku journal, April 2017
Theme: Edible Haiku

 

tasting a word
as I say it aloud —
gnocchi

 
the soft velvet
of apricots
against our lips

   

pierogi day —
pinching loose ends
of dough & memories
