lingering at the frosty frogpond

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu — David Giacalone @ 9:27 am

Last week, we posted almost a dozen senryu by our Honored Guest Poets that appeared in the newest issue of Frogpond (Vol. XXXI:1), and promised to share their haiku from the Winter 2008 edition before Valentine’s Day. Keeping promises is just as important in weblogging as it is in romance. So, with the help of a looming deadline, we present:

Haiku from Frogpond XXXI:1 (Winter 2008)

old morning shadows–
the first old month
on the calendar

the wind changes
my plan to sit still
changes

………………….. by gary hotham

careful not to step
on daffodil sprouts . . .
moon-viewing

……………….. by paul m.

first summer day
a child’s bucket brims
with seashells

……………….. by George Swede

  heat lightning and the dry burn of whiskey

………… by Jim Kacian

acorn caps —
somebody’s wallet
on a park bench

military crackdown – crows flip
a cloud of starlings
shrouds the sun

……………. by carolyn hall

holiday reunion
the turkey meat
falls off the bone

……………………. by Alice Frampton

a blue tongue
and a red mustache —
we trade snow cones

…………………….. by David Giacalone
