orange sunrise
birds fly in formation
above an empty beach

—Mary Chapman
        

About the author: My name is Mary Chapman; I am married and the mother of three boys. I have always enjoyed reading poetry. My interest was sparked while in High School. We were challenged by an English teacher to write a love poem. It was not until recently that I became interested in haiku. I also write short stories and poetry. My favorite all time poet is Edgar Allen Poe.

    Dear Mary you are in a nice road. It is difficult but charmed. Haiku poetry is a concentration thinkings, short and beauty. It is a flash that in stead to blind us it open our eyes. Thank you for your satisfaction that gave me with your haiku.
    My haiku is that:

    the bitter death
    took my friend
    with black hair...

    and

    abandoned dog
    that growles
    is dispach its oneness...

    The canary's song
    Echoes in the wind
    As she sits in her nest
    Protecting her young

    sunrise
    the garden buddha
    emerges from the garden


    high noon
    the garden buddha
    pocked with droppings


    sunset
    i scrub the buddha
    with a wire brush


    cheers from montreal!

    The moon lays a golden trellis
    on the dark skin of the bay

    driving rain, cross the lawn
    tiny orange butterfly, rise and fall
