HAIKU

Duo, Trio 1

 

dense fog
I dream walk
my sense of I
 
   
  in the darkness
of womb, a life swims
into my life
   
moon —
on the balcony
of a Mumbai apartment

        _kala
 
   
  the sky
in pieces on the ground
winter burial
 
cloud country
high granite outcrops
fading

        Jo McInerney
 
   
  empty stands
a seagull chases
a ketchup cup
   
crows lifting fog every which way  
   
  winter garden
thinking of the ones
that didn't make it

        Susan Constable
 
a spill
of rowan berries —
winter sunset
 
   
  our train streaks
through the valley —
a rabbit, ears upright

        Diana Webb
   
slung between its shadow and the waves the curlew's belly  
   
  along singing tracks seeds of willowherb
 
cascading over limestones a split in the river

        John Barlow
 
   
  early snow
she goes into labor
digging the last potatoes
   
bridge traffic
slows for the fog
the dog smell of the sea

        Garry Eaton
 
   
  A few foreigners
on the road to Bethlehem
sort of excited
 
Bastille Day morning.
Let us go then, you and I,
down to the river.
 
   
  A loon's cries
and winds from Lac-qui-Parle.
Let's go home.
