spring walk -
my son tries to reach
the sky with a stick

—Gosia Zamorska
        

About the author: I live in the Polish seaside city of Gdansk. I like thinking and analysing, but mostly I appreciate the beauty of simplicity. That's why I like haiku. I am better able to understand its spirit thanks to abc.haiku.pl, the online forum where I'm writing. Apart from poetry I'm interested in the world view of Stanislaw Lem and the anthropology of culture. I'm trying to be useful helping people suffering from cancer and teaching them how to write poetry.

    I really enjoy the "concrete poetry" form of this haiku - having the word "reach" above the rest of the words in the next line. It's perfect.

    May he never stop reaching.

    a child's laughter
    driving dandelion seeds
    the warm wind

    SHELLS
    high tide
    no footprints
    remain

    approach of autumn
    with a promise to return--
    ascending snow goose

    The whole sky
    in a child's sight-
    vernal equinox
