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.
