Haiku - Fickle Spring 2017
by Mick Talbot
a starfish
does not shine brightly
its colour blinds
~~
nightingales sing
enhancing dusk time moments
inviting darkness
~~
fickle springtime
not halted natural instincts
summertime awaits
~~
sun glints... melts late frost
ere the north wind...  tis bitter
freezing unsheltered
~~
ice smooth lakes
succumb......

Teal Harbor
by Dale Gregory Cozart
Idle porcelain boats 
are seagulls 
floating
on a teal harbor
blond moorings
cast like kelp
Sails stiff 
as egrets
glide slowly
toward 
a cerulean channel
Atop turtle islands
pastel cottages
are pearls gleaming
on oyster...
