a few new ku from Bottle Rockets #20

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu — David Giacalone @ 8:41 pm

haikuEsq has been nagging me to find more new poems by our f/k/a family of poets — particularly haiku not appearing elsewhere online.  Happily, Issue #20 of Bottle Rockets (Vol. 10, no. 1) landed in Ed Markowski‘s mail box last week, and he was thoughtful enough to dig out the haiku and senryu written by a few of our Honored Guest Poets.  There’s a trio by Tom Painting, and three from Ed, too.  Plus, a couple of our stalwarts contribute one each.  Enjoy!

family reunion
a new generation
of war stories

foreclosure
my neighbor’s garden
gone to seed

Valentine’s Day 
we pass the lip balm
back & forth

reflecting pond
its purity renewed when
i raise my head

water street
her house looks just like
her house
