Haiku by Theresa A. Cancro

sliver of moon
in lingering clouds--
lost flip-flop among the dunes

he kisses
my eyes closed--bits of baklava
beneath the coverlet

catching the fly-ball
I become my son's
new hero

sea glass--
the gull's eye
spots a morsel

Haiku by ayaz daryl nielsen

early evening
sofa covered with nephews
nieces and kittens

a long dream
waking beside
a purring cat

longing for a windstorm
   reeds in a small pond
      imagine new moves
