Look for our linked haibun book, Tangled in Dreams, available now.
In addition, all of us continue to publish poems and written forms
related to haiku poetry in contests and the many journals in the field
(e.g., Frogpond, Modern Haiku, Mariposa).
when the rain stops
I close the door
shadow of a cloud
nears a Holstein
end of summer
from our swim suits
into school shoes

(a three-line poem followed by a two line poem--called tan renga)
waiting for flowers
my plant press
first warm day
thuds the box
