Winter Dreams
Rose Kowaliw

Sunshine and blue seas
Snorkeling with pretty fish
Damn alarm goes off.

You Go First
Rose Kowaliw

Decisions to make
Picture perfect, not so much
It will be painful.

Rose Kowaliw

Past, present merging
Time folding into itself

Rose Kowaliw loves the sparse beauty of a Haiku and its illusion of simplicity.

On top of one-story house
Roofing crew stops work

Weather Can Be Frightening

Cup of tea steeping.

It's Winter

Rock Fest
Chris Bays

a mist-spotted moon—
i canít recall where i parked
in the muddy lot

Epic Gossip
Chris Bays

his lover left home
to fight, prove himself a man
in some desert storm

Budget Cuts
Chris Bays

like gritty gristle
the chairmanís words go unchewed
i yearn for sirloin

As Above So Below
Brett Dixon

half moon morning
fresh ice glistens underfoot
a walk among stars

Brett Dixon

the Winter reminds
the trees how to stand naked
old nests in the crooks

Too Soon
Brett Dixon

flurries in the wind
the Cold gives breath a body
and takes it away

Brett Dixon began working with haiku as a way of paying more attention. He hopes continued practice with this art will help him to trust the power of his word. These haiku are Brett's first published works of poetry. He is also currently working on his first novel.
