f/k/a archives . . . real opinions & real haiku

off to the library for some fresh air

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu — David Giacalone @ 11:14 am

 It’s much too nice outside today to be indoors drafting serious punditry, so we’re heading out into Schenectady’s sunny breezes. If you’re stuck at a desk and want a lovely stroll through a haiku garden, the f/k/a Gang suggests heading over to Tom Clausen’s Mann Library haiku website, at Cornell University.

 Here are a few poems by our Honored Guest Billie Wilson, which had been featured in June 2008 at Mann; click and browse through her Mann archives for more. This month, you will find haiku and senryu by Roberta Beary at Mann Library every day.

fruitstand apples—
the rich smell of horses
on my hands

storm clouds roil
across the prairie—
she marks her place

for years to come
the flowers he planted
along the narrow road

pink lemonade—
the taffeta rustle
of cottonwoods

…. by Billie Wilson, and featured June 2008 at the Mann Library Haiku Page
