psst: sneak preview: hilary tann

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 8:43 am

Before I sneak off for a day in NYC hanging out

with haijin, I’m going to leave you with a taste of

the work of our newest Honored Guest Poet,

Hilary Tann.   I’ll formally introduce her very soon.

Today, her haiku and senryu do the talking:



late supper
the smell of tomato plants
under my fingernails  






dappled sunlight —
waiting to hear
you’re safely home



pickup g  pickup gf




March wind

wondering how I tied my hair

as a child









traffic jam

the man ahead

raises his cup



late supper” & “dappled sunlight”  The Heron’s Nest– (VII:4, Dec. 2005)

“traffic jam” & “March Wind” – Upstate Dim Sum  (2005/II)
