thunderstorms--
tadpoles swimming
in my porch

—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.

    a mermaid
    in the vernal pool---
    spring break

    dreaming
    deluge---
    fairy shrimp

    the ballooning
    throats of frogs---
    pool party

    After the great gale,
    thausands of empty shells
    invade the gold sands

    overnight downpour--
    up to his chin in water
    the garden gnome

    strange odor
    air-conditioner spews
    old dead frog

    late night silence-
    lightning flashes
    without the thunder
