Haiku from Haiku Canada Members’ Anthology 2011 Observer Observed

writer’s block
I tap the crumbs
from the keyboard

~Charles Trumbull~

After the downpour
a sparrow in the gutter
sipping at clouds

~Klaus Dieter Wirth~

distant thunder...
a flashlight
weaving down the path

~David Elliott~

oven warm bread
the long reach
of the baker

~Hans Jongman~
