A sudden glint … (tanka)

 

staring skyward
at the meteor shower
I brush away two fireflies–
a sudden glint
of new found love

Woodsmoke…

This haiku has just appeared in The Heron’s Nest, a distinguished journal of haiku. For me, as a first time poet in this journal, it is a truly great honor for which I’m thankful.

My poem is on page 11 of The Heron’s Nest:  http://www.theheronsnest.com/March2016/haiku-p11.html

 

winter night—

the curl of woodsmoke

takes flight
