sample haiku & senryu


morning glory
when I look deeper
the world disappears

Geri Barton


dry creek bed
a saddled horse passes
without a rider

Allan Burns


missing child
I pass a snow angel
on a front lawn

William Cullen Jr.


I lead the cow away
from her stillborn calf . . .

Ferris Gilli


the blow-up santa
buoyant as ever

LeRoy Gorman


last persimmon
the real estate agent
suggests a lower price

Deborah P. Kolodji


north wind . . .
the black walnut grove
stripped to its nuts

David McKee


late to work
I stop to watch
a snail cross

Melanie McLay


my brother’s viewing
everyone eager to hold
his infant niece

Kathe L. Palka


grandmother’s funeral—
her friends waiting
at the cemetery

Claudette Russell


from out of an old Chevy
stripped and rusting at the curb
soap bubbles
