Haiku by Linda M. Crate

april rains
phoenix rise
rainbow dance.

autumn gold
leaves of the past

blue lipped
angel of ice

stories untold
wing away.

nova burning
remember me

Haiku by Stefanie Bennett

The lesser evil
never gets caught unless
the altar-wine sours

Time didn't learn to fly -
she chose a Harley
side-car instead
