midday sun--
a tree frog on the french door
turns translucent

—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.

    indian summer
    the veins of the cameleon's

    shattered windows
    broken in a dream--
    childhood home

    nighttime windowpane
    an anole curves with starred feet
    swallows mosquitos

    the river's tide
    a hungry dog
    catching the moon over the waves

    icing
    to the fence with nettles
    a dog is pissing

    midfall
    in full song--
    crickets, cicadas, and katydids

    Vines begin to climb
    as morning glory shoots up
    portulaca weaves

    Petals catch the light
    Whirls of blossoms wake the senses
    nature is rattled

    this duck flying
    as the world darkens--
    around me
