one barb of the wire
tiny web
catching dew

—Erin Noteboom

About the author: I've just published my first book, Ghost Maps: Poems for Carl Hruska, which won the CBC Canadian Literary Award and is currently short-listed for the League of Canadian Poets award for best book of poetry by a woman. I live, as you might guess, in Canada -- in Kitchener, Ontario. Haiku are an old passion for me.

I keep a daily weblog at, and can be reached by e-mail at erin (at)

    abandoned windmill
    rain drops rain drops
    colored in rust

    petunia outgrowing pot
    leaps into unknown

    morning twilight
    last of the rain ...
    drips through the fronds

    tries to climb

    barb cut
    a red river flows ...
    through my vein
