star filled night--
a wandering coyote
sleeps in a trash can

—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.

    starry night
    bright moon still
    attracts me more

    starry night
    a cloud confiscates
    the waning moon

    A shooting star-
    the wandering coyote
    cries out in one's sleep

    black filled night --
    scripture read
    by candle light

    country sky—
    are these stars here
    every night

    Starry, starry night
    Flying squirrels thread among the
    Gems within the boughs

    late evening hunger pangs
    leaving drive thru window--
    4, no 5 five stray cats
