Rengay: Thump of a Rose

.
Thump of a Rose


moonflower
a dead friend’s name
on the tip of my tongue       
..........Billie Dee, San Diego, CA

hissing, a lava finger
enters the sea    
..........Josh Wikoff, Petaluma, CA

rustling aspen
mouse bones
in the barn-owl pellet          
..........Michael Dylan Welch, Sammamish, WA

a locust storm
above the field corn              
..........Billie

spawned out
each stone in the river
lends its voice                       
..........Josh

the thump of a rose
on the child’s casket            
..........Michael



Winner of an honorable mention in the 2010 Haiku Poets of Northern California Rengay Contest
