HAIKU

Elizabeth Howard

 

October morning
twin smoke stacks loom
above the river fog
 
   
  a brouhaha
unsettles the evening
owl versus crow
   
sundown
eerie chatter
in the cattails
 
   
  hillside vineyard
snow meanders
in the sculpted rows
 
pond glow
bats orbit
the harvest moon
 
   

Elizabeth Howard lives in Crossville, Tennessee, where she taught high-school English. Her haiku have been published in Modern Haiku, The Heron's Nest, Snapshots, South by Southeast, Mariposa, and other journals.
