sample haiku & senryu



repotting the jade . . .
that I am childless

Jim Kacian

barn dance
the fist fight spills over
into the moonlight

Ken Hurm

the wide ocean;
my wife twists her wet hair
into a ponytail

Del Doughty

peeking through
tiny holes—
first confession

Melanie Hayes

breaking up—
she asks me one more time
to jump-start her car

George G. Dorsty

waxing moon
we take turns cranking
the ice cream maker

W.F. Owen
