Haiku from the 2013 Haiku Canada Holographic Anthology

one blossom closes
another opens
spring morning

~kjmunro~

cranberry bog
wading through
a million suns

~Ellen Cooper~

Anniversary
on his bedside table
a thin film of dust

~Pat Benedict~

wind on the water
I change the colour of her hair
in my poem

~Nick Avis~
