Haiku by Pat Geyer

storm spirit spits
rain in the face of the wind . . .
squall line angers

banished he leaves . . .
pushing from the breakwaters
he catches a storm

Pat Geyer lives in East Brunswick, NJ.  Her home is surrounded by the parks and lakes where she finds her inspiration in nature.  Published in several journals, she is an amateur photographer and poet.

Haiku by Mikayla Heiss

black sky
illuminated by street lights
no stars to be found

black dots
scatter the sheet
design determining a final grade

under pointy leaves
a tropical fruit of compassion
