Ice ferns . . . (tanka)

scraping ice ferns

off the windows

of our old jalopy –

such fragile beauty     

soon pushed aside

I was born

in a winter storm,

a tiny soul

almost lost

in a sea of white

Watching my hair dance . . . (haiga)

Using a photo I took and two different art programs on my iPad, a new picture appeared that was perfect for this senryu.

This haiga was published in:
Failed Haiku, A Journal of English Senryu, Issue 16, April 2017

 

 

 

 

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

 

woodsmoke
