Haiku from the 30th Anniversary Members Anthology "Blossoming" Haiku Canada 2007

on the seashore
a hundred-year-old couple
seated in eternity

~Janick Belleau~

onto cedar bough
cherry blossom settles
so soundlessly

~Guy Simser~

between each wave
my children

~Marco Fraticelli~

japanese garden
we wait for the moon
to light the stone lantern
