published haiku

So busy with writing and editing this past year, I’ve neglected to update this page, but as I blog regularly, many of my published haiku can be accessed by searching “haiku” on the main page. Publication credits are included when I blog haiku and tanka that have appeared in journals.

archive of my haiku as a contributor for cycle 11 of DailyHaiku here:

(and there’s a final week coming up soon!)


the tracks
of your leaving…
moon-sifted snow

HONOURABLE MENTION, Haiku Pen International competition 2011 (LPP ezine)

from the throat
of a blackbird…
morning star

the coals
of the ash tree…
autumn breeze

ACORN 26 spring 2011

dancing
to the tune of foxgloves…
summer breeze

light rain
the pindrop scent
of jasmine

LYRICAL PASSION POETRY ezine 2010

scattered drops
from the pheasant’s tail
autumn rain

a night of dreams
the purple iridescence
of a magpie’s wing

PRESENCE 43 2011

light fills
a long-stemmed glass
first crocus

bookmarking
your favourite place
nuthatches

the first splash
of ewe’s milk…
snowdrops

PRESENCE 44 2011


a score of starlings
on the telegraph wires…
the wind’s song

the last drops
of cabernet…
robin at dusk

NOTES FROM THE GEAN, March 2011

my mother’s childhood…
from the flower press
a celandine

willow shade
a jackdaw turns
the skimming stones

a maple leaf
slips slowly downstream…
‘me’ time

NOTES FROM THE GEAN, June 2011

an unswept curl
on the silversmith’s floor
new moon

a crow
lamp post to lamp post
winter twilight

a cloth of moss
on the altar stone…
birdsong

MANGO MOONS, MUSE INDIA, 2011

autumn
shadows lead the way
along the river

sunlight
petrol in water
a starling’s breast

meteor shower
the scent of honeysuckle
in the rain

cirrus moon
one cloud anchored
in the flow

autumn song
the ruby tones
of a robin

SIMPLY HAIKU, autumn 2010

frost takes a petal
of the white chrysanthemum
day moon

honeymoon
a roe deer sips the edge
of sunrise

first crescent
of the hunter moon
the wild cat’s eyes

icicles
the stillness.
of windchimes

delphinium
wearing the bruise
of thunder

SIMPLY HAIKU, winter 2011


waning moon
the score of your song
in every snowflake

mist
from an open clam shell
mountain lake

snow flurries
from the breast of a song thrush
morning sky

catching
the blue eye of the breeze
dragonfly

fire coals
the darker crackle
of pond ice

SIMPLY HAIKU, spring 2011

the silence
of the white mandolin . . .
half day moon

between dreams . . .
a blackbird’s song brushed
into the firs

watermelon . . .
the coolness of the hill
at sunset

where the hawk
pinned the morning sky . . .
Arcturus

stitching
a patch of sunlight . . .
damselfly

SIMPLY HAIKU, summer 2011

climate change–
digging deep in the pocket
of conscience

first light
a year after your death
snowdrops

mist on the high road
time to call the tune—
the Last Post

nothing left
but the wishbone
November sky

scattered rainbows
the starlings have lost
their summer plumage

autumn…
spreading like wildfire
through the horse-chestnuts

sun past the yardarm
another old sea dog
laid to rest

remember that day?
we folded down a corner
of sunset

the last star’s chimes
hang in the air…
icicles

daybreak
a glass bell
of wren song

winter drizzle
all the words you never say
I can’t shake off

the childhood
my mother glosses over…
black ice

eclipse
of the Long Nights Moon…
news of an earthquake

the gnawed edge
of a hazelnut shell
November sky

MAINICHI DAILY NEWS December 6th 2010

autumn sunset
my mother remembers
the lamplighter

MAGNAPOETS 7 2011

spring cleaning…
windows open to birdsong
washed crystal

goldfinch breeze…
the sense of losing
what I never had

if snowflakes
could linger as scent…
white hyacinths

daffodils in the mist the children’s playground songs

spring breeze
the bandstand fills
with birdsong

    Hi Claire, I would like to get permission to reprint one of your Haiku in a school textbook. How may I get ahold of you to send you a permission letter?

      I think I may have received an email about that Lynn. I wasn’t sure how to respond. I am happy for you to use the haiku, as long as its full publication credit is cited.
