paint can


A warm breeze . . .

the scent of hay bales

from the moonlit field


Cold autumn dusk–

fog mantles the bridge

where the suicide jumped


by Rebecca Lilly, from the loose thread :The Red Moon Anthology  of English- loose thread small  

Language Haiku 2001 (edited by Jim Kacien, and the Red Moon editorial staff). 

Rebecca Lilly: Visitors to this site will soon be familiar with the thoughtful, well-honed poetry of Rebecca Lilly, who brings unique perspectives to traditional haiku topics.  Rebecca is featured in A New Resonance 2: Emerging Voices in English-Language Haiku.  Her first book of haiku, Shadwell Hills (from Birch Brook Press, 2002), received a Merit Book Award from the Haiku Society of America in 2003.  We’re grateful to have Rebecca’s rare voice and thank her for the gift of her poetry.
