float in rain-filled wheelbarrow—
clouds dot rusty sky

a robin carries a twig
past a storm-felled tree

Circle of Life
Rose Kowaliw

Spring comes silently
bulbs emerge, flowers unfold
Continuity.

Tranquil Moment
Rose Kowaliw

White swans swimming by
canoe on pristine waters
Sublime reflections.

Rose Kowaliw enjoys creating original computer art as well as painting in oils, both of which have been shown in galleries in NY and New England. Her Haiku and poetry have been published in a wide variety of literary publications. She lives in pristine New Hampshire with her family and spends summers at the ocean walking the beach at dawn searching for sea glass. "I am drawn to the sparse beauty of a Haiku like the tides are drawn to the moon."

the whole note of the full moon
