Haiku by Iain Macdonald


hot soup
in a red bowl,
rain on the window



prized First Edition,
but the bored puppy
doesn't care



scalding shower;
the scent of your skin
rising from mine



three days of rain
and the frogpond
is reborn



alien sighting--
keeper at work
among the hives



Born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland, Iain Macdonald currently lives in Arcata, California.  He has earned his bread and beer in various ways, from flower picker to factory hand, merchant marine officer to high school teacher.  His first two chapbooks, Plotting the Course and Transit Report, were published by March Street Press, and a third, The Wrecker's Yard, was published in 2015 by Kattywompus Press.
