stars on my coat
from the winter sky

About the author: I was born in Chehalis, Wash. Have lived in British Columbia, Canada, since I was 16. After finishing a B.A. in English Literature at the University of B.C., I have written two books of Western free verse and published both articles and short stories in various literary journals. Recently-- I've concentrated my efforts on short verse. I've been published in several haiku journals including Temps Libre, Haiku Spirit, Moments, Short Stuff, Dew-on-Line, and the World Haiku Review, where I recieved an honourable mention for the 2002 R.H.

    a beautiful simple haiku. Excellent as a 2-liner. Totally unadorned letting the reader complete the picture. A fresh, clean poem!

    resting in the pines
    before beginning the ascent -

    the sun


    my feet
    under sand -
    the crab


    know why
    the wind howls -
    think you know me


    her hand -
    tropical breeze


    to ashes -
    star dust

    your haiku simple and beautiful
    effective as a two liner.

    waiting for old pal
    stirring the moon
    in the glass

    I have had some of my haiku published but thats not what drives me, shadows, reflections and lizards do.

    reading haiku-
    a cloud of mist
    settles on the page
