The stream is muddy
the mallard ducks were scared off
by an intruder (me)

Richard Stevenson

While I'm a relative newbie to the genre, I've managed to get three full-length collections of haiku and related forms accepted for publication in the last little while: Hot Flashes: Maiduguri Haiku, Senryu, and Tanka ( Ekstasis Editions, 2001), A Charm of Finches: Haiku, Senryu, and Tanka ( Ekstasis Editions, 2004 -- out any day now ), and A Tidings of Magpies ( Spotted Cow Press, forthcoming ). My other work spans the range from jazz poetry to young adult verse.

leaf blower
or floor polisher --
can't tell from here

ah, spring!
flicker rat-a-tat-tats at
the telephone pole

twenty-four degrees!
even inside I can hear
poplar catkins pop

with hormones raging
boys threatened with going blind
still going at it

at the bowling lanes
the union members gathered
voting on a strike

on the summer's morn
so many dreams realized
in the flower bed

her many teardrops
like water over a dam
flooding my senses

1a

Tamarack pine spruce
buzz with flies and all around
our lonely canoe.

1b

Tous les mouches bourdonnent
près des pins et cèdres et
autour du canot.

2a

Over lakes somewhere
2 loons howl as if
beside our canoe.

2b

D'où l'ululement
des huards, d'un lac prochain
ou bien lointain?

3a

Their hysteria
(the loons') warns, "Here she comes,
a wild thunderstorm!"

3b

Quel orage annonce
l'hystérie des huards, le leur
ou le tonnerre ?
