FRIDAY POETRY SERIES PRESENTS: Haiku

by Judson Evans

November rain-
long ropes of the window washers
float in the wind



by Anita Virgil

Emerging hot and rosy
from their skins-
beets!



by Cor Van Den Heuvel

the blues singer
tells how bad it is
then the sax tells you too



by Raymond Roseliep

unable
to get hibiscus red
the artist eats the flower




Editors Note: Originating in Japan, the art of haiku has charmed the rest of the world with its vivid density of language. The haiku doesn't tell a story so much as it suggests one. Traditionally, the art form concerned the seasons, but it continually evolves. The emphasis now lies on the poet's talent for transmitting the perception of a unique moment in time in as few words as possible.
