HAIKU

Duo, Trio 2

 

coming dusk the empty space in a coyote's call  
   
  ungentle wind
grasping
a sudden silence
   
mating squirrels
the steady certainty
of spring

        Linda Pilarski
 
   
  no need
to find time
this place
 
    no moon
                my mind follows
the wild geese

        Colin Stewart Jones
 
   
  between Genesis
and Revelations —
some bird's perfect pitch
   
seedless watermelon —
as my family eats,
the quiet
 
   
  dervish of leaves
i walk
for the hell of it

        Tyrone McDonald
 
a dirt patch
grandpa's missing
tooth
 
   
  spring sunrise
my sundress
suddenly lifts

        Raquel D. Bailey
 
wind chimes
your gauze curtains
in the moonlight
 
   
  a long walk home
piles of raked leaves
at the orphanage
   
silent night
no sirens on Christmas
in the city of angels

        William Cullen Jr
 
   
  old pond —
a seed
for an empire of string
 
sea cucumber — freedom
foreclosure — umbrella
mandala — petal rain
 
   
  ants begin to look like an idea

        Scott Metz
