arriving late-

the others’ footprints

snow-filled

 

Close to the Wind, HNA Anthology 2013

 

twilight moon-

a hole in the chestnut

fills with stars

 

HC Members’ Anthology 2013

 

late harvest-

picking apples

from the tree’s shadow

 

Matrix Magazine issue 88: Zen Poetry

 

hanami picnic-

more blossoms

than sky

 

Best in Canada VCBF Haiku Invitational 2011

 

behind tall cornfields

the autumn sun

how soon it sets!

 

Honourable Mention Mainichi 2009

 

grapefruit harvest-

the morning sun

left dangling

 

Honourable Mention Betty Drevniok Award 2012

 

a raindrop strikes

the bell’s reflection-

surface ripples

 

ocean floor-

a stingray lifts

the turtle’s shadow

 

 

Pink Lake-

a leaf falls into

the colour of dawn

 

Regional Haiku, HNA 2013

 

hanging laundry-

my shadow

blows away

 

Holographic Anthology, Haiku Canada 2013

 

Oklahoma-

in the blown out tire

a piece of sky

 

still pond-

the touch

of a feather’s shadow

 

nobody home…

on the front porch

fallen maple keys

 

a branch quivers

in this summer heat-

distant birdsong

 

 

migrating geese-

from which cloud

this stray snowflake?
