return trip to the heron’s nest

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu — David Giacalone @ 10:57 am


Early last week we promised more haiku from the latest heronLogo
edition of The Heron’s Nest (VIII: 3, Sept. 2006).  That’s
a promise we’re happy to keep:



morning fog
the music
between headlines



bright morning —
walking the pain
from my heart


. . . Hilary Tann – see “morning fog” “bright morning —” 




mating robins
the broken yellow
of the centerline

. . . . . . . Alice FramptonTHN (VIII:3)




from birdsong to birdsong
city morning

. . . Barry GeorgeTHN (VIII:3)





winter dawn
a tub of washing
all run blue


. . . Matt MordenTHN (VIII:3)




cold moon —
a stray dog roams
the village street


. . . Billie Wilson  – THN (VIII:3)




almost spring
she tells the whole story
in a single breath


. . . John Stevenson  THN, (VIII:3, Editors’ Choice






evening warmth —
latchkey kids play rummy
in the doorway


. . . Rebecca Lilly  – THN (VIII:3)

plum blossoms
I make plans
for my ashes

the woods 
on the cusp of darkness
