Two haiku

I was honoured to have two of my poems published in the latest issue of A Hundred Grouds, the quarterly journal of haiku, haibun, haiga tanka and renku poetry. The first was inspired one evening during the winter, when I was on my own in the house waiting on my children to come home from school. It was getting dark and I was beginning to feel slightly concerned, when I heard the patter of (not so tiny) feet coming up the garden path.

The second haiku was written while observing a flock of starlings overhead as they returned to their nests at the end of the day. They play a ‘now you see me, now you don’t’ sort of game as they twist and turn.

Anyway, the two poems are on this link if you feel like reading them – since they are only three lines each it doesn’t take very long!

Page 3 starts with my first one and the second is at the bottom of page 15.

It’s great to see lots of my haiku friends in there too and I’m delighted to share the page with Anatoly Kudryavitsky, editor of Shamrock – the journal of the Irish Haiku Society! 🙂
