in the stirrings
of the moonlight
a dog barking

@chaney_anette

stars emerging
among the water lilies
a silent frog

@HaikuMyBrew

Crocus heads blister
the soil, erupting in
purple tenderness

@orridge_anna

when the great whale
is revealed cell by cell…
low tide

@haikutec

hard rain
on the windowsill
tiny elbows

@NaumaddicArts

summer heat
barefoot dancing
with mosquitoes

one sparrow —
how big the sky
can be

departing geese
the flutter of her kimono
in the breeze

@arvinder8

again climbing yesterday’s mountain

@pmll3r

crisp fall air
piles of leaves
colors burning

@LinderLeeL

house plants
dying by the window
living on the wall

@HerbTate5

care home singalong
the hum of forgotten words
fade

@deer_ward

spring buds pop their heads,
february trickery,
winter snaps, not yet!

@RhondaLBrown2

early spring
a lone daffodil
fills a field

@YourMoonliness

lake mist
a swan’s fine figure
serenely glides

@deer_ward

riding a bike
after the rain
so many frogs

@WordOmelets

glistening leaf the slug’s long footprint

@AsurasHaiku

perfume
lightly on my wrist
a mosquito

@mossinsnow

low tide — the egret’s legs shorter yesterday

Forests of Cicadas 森
There are no songs
until tomorrow.

– @micro_zon

surviving the plague years–
waving to my neighbor
across the street

@voimaoy

soaking heat …
I am the fly’s
sip of water

@NaumaddicArts

a pause in the rain
the meadow flooded
with sparrow song

@HaikuMyBrew

peony blossoms
her youth flowering
in a silk kimono

@deer_ward

winter clouds
the mountain I didn’t climb
last summer

@hegelincanada

burning memories
– sake, rice, companions
flying to the moon

@micro_zon

a new book
on house plants…
recently widowed

@lover__poetic

scorching summer noon
a young tree trying to rest
in its own shadow

@TalwaiSarita

waters edges seen
peony bending for a
sip of moistened dew

@LiLDELain

winter flurries
the rush to put on
tiny boots and mittens

@leftinflint

counting the years
already half-past
daffodil season

@YourMoonliness

two snow figures
side by side
melting together

@FictionCrumbs

childhood games
the tortured frog
limping away

@AsurasHaiku

Special Mentions

young frog
taking the place
of the water lily

@HerbTate5

water lily
damselflies
in love

@NaumaddicArts

shoveling snow …
her very first
blister

@NaumaddicArts

low tide —
a constellation of starfish
mirrors the night sky

@WendyGent_

winter dreams
of blistering summers
how fickle we are

@BruceJewett

what a view! ants on the windowsill

@AsurasHaiku

water lily
drop after drop rolling
down her cheek

@AsurasHaiku

mountain rest stop
the balm of christmas cake
and a blister kit

@haikutec

last breath…
at the backyard grave
my blisters and I weep

@pegcherrinmyers

Childhood
At low tide, hidden treasure
Everywhere

@JamesWelsh35

rock pools at low tides
invite us to say hello
drop in dip a toe

@CMamathi

snowflakes in an updraft only grief settling on the windowsill
