Verses from the Past Haiku

Poet, lithe, cheerful,
framed by afternoon sunlight,
ascends Mount Fuji.

She raises her frame,
and then lowers it again,
and slowly exhales.

In her kitchen, still,
holds a cup of kee-mun, sips,
bare but for her socks.

(from the Breakfast Table of Archibald Lampman)

  • Birthday Senryu

    . Let the Naiads sing Who will wear the Starry Crown? Then eat cake. (from The Paean of Dignity, 3d edn)

  • Wishing for Warm Water Senryu

    Caribbean Dreams waylay us in deep winter but the snow prevails (from Crepuscular Idyll)

  • Escape to the Plaza Haiku

    An invocation of contradiction of sorts Winter is still with us. (From Tales of Persepolis: Lockdown Lays)
