HAIKU

David Giacalone

 

the pond ices over -
impressionist to
cubist overnight
 
   
  early March --
the weather vane goose
still heading south
   
winter gale --
the crows fly farther
than the crow flies
 
   
  small sad face
in the puddle --
last weekend's snowman
 
a warm yule . . .
the ice-fishing hole
mostly hole
 
   

David Giacalone David Giacalone lives in Schenectady, New York. At his weblog, f/k/a, he is a "haiku advocate and missionary" -- mixing haiku by established writers with punditry aimed at an audience composed primarily of lawyers. Besides Simply Haiku, David's poems have appeared in The Heron's Nest, Frogpond, Roadrunner Haiku Journal, Red Moon Anthology 2005, and Mainichi Daily News. They were anthologized in the Legal Studies Forum in both 2005 and 2006.
