the shallows --
waves run in
on tiny feet


—Karen Dooley
        

About the author: My name is Karen Dooley and I live in Australia. I began writing haiku rather accidentally one sunny Sunday morning in 2004 when one popped into my head. At the time I was reading haiku to try and work out why so many of my teacher education students were writing units 'to teach haiku'. Now I'm hooked...

    war museum
    killer steels
    in the prison of forgetfulness

    hang ten...
    dog on the beach
    looking for his master

    Rushing in shallow
    waters, rushing out again
    Taking a quick dip.

    A waterfall downstream-
    the waves on a war footing
    are running off

    bobbing and diving
    my boys and the ocean
    reflecting delight

    trapped water
    below fallen tree
    little fish in paradise

    autumn rain
    drops above the grass
    sea of ants

    Albania...

    the shallows-
    myriad of tiny silver fish
    fearful of the depths

    Under the rusty grate,
    Limestone rocks
    And green pools

    soothing bubbles
    golden home
    silver fish dance in the shallows

    shallows left behind
    a hurricane's tidal surge
    dragonfly buffet

    alongside white wall
    shady side of sunset--
    blue morning-glories
