Day 3 Highlights

Day 3 was all about that funny little form the haiku. Some people complained; others moaned; but everyone took a shot (or even several shots) at writing this Japanese classic. Here are some of the pieces that made me stop and ponder.


Crescent moon at dawn

frosted blossoms bowing low

to the rising light

Scarlet clouds

drift over the sun.

Hawks snatch their prey.

Soaring hawk

On a cold blue morning

A mole’s destiny

Sudden rain

Pitter-patter shore of flamenco




Zona Yi-Ping Tsou |besidelakeAT NOSPAMgmail dot com




yellow jackets hum

hanging on old-barked branches

late for the party

Girls in the driveway

hopping up and down, twirling,

above white clouds dance.

Flaming trees herald

the last drunken flight of butterflies

before the first frost

Two trails through cracked leaves.

Light and twigs cast chickenscratch

Warmly on two trails.

as wet as the pond

fishing with my son

in the June rain

My corgis pause

to water the dogwoods;

coats wet with spring dew



Marcus Smith |sleeperdesuAT NOSPAMhotmail dot com




wind whips aloft

fire light filtered through

tree branches

    These are all wonderful. The "mole’s destiny" was very striking -made me pause and think. The "corgi’s" was wonderfully ironic – it made me grin!
    Thanks Everyone! Michelle
