late spring--
the fading glow of the comet
  in the evening sky


—Jane Wilson
        

This haiku refers to the comet Hale-Bopp which was visible in March, April, and May of 1997.

I live and work in Richmond, Virginia, where I was born. My haiku have been pulished on tinywords.com, the Asahi Haikuist Network, The Heron's Nest, and in Acorn: A Journal of Contemporary Haiku. I also enjoy writing short poems in the style of Japanese tanka.

    the full moon setting...
    one day ends; another begins
    the sun rising

    a comet scatters
    the stars ~ an owl
    sings a lullaby ~

    spring, midday -
    very vivid,
    aches and pains of winter
