vanishing koi -
at the bottom of the pond
a cloud of silt

—Nancy Smith
        

About the author: Born and raised in the USA, I have been writing and publishing haiku since the early 70ís. My work has appear in in many periodicals including Dragonfly, Tightrope, Brussels Sprouts, Frogpond, Haiku Harvest, Modern Haiku , Heronís Nest, World Haiku Review, WorldWall, Simply Haiku, Poets Market, and the occasional anthology. Sometimes it has won prizes though contests were entered more by accident than otherwise.

    very nice Nance,

    you drew me into the image, then left me blind.

    Always,

    Gene

    pond lily perfume
    surronds this floating beauty--
    gold fish swim about

    courting wealth
    the auspicious silver glare
    of the koi

    white lilac
    blooming the best...
    a year off

    fallen bougainvillea's blossoms -
    twilight
    ongoing
