Brava, bravo to all for your creativity and courage in responding to my call for a haiku.

I loved receiving them and having a few "haiku hiatuses" throughout my day.

Collaboration powers

The values we hold

 

"Ottawa Heatwave" by Drew Duncan

hot path peddling

spokes begin water-wheeling

wet foot surprise

 

Catherine Riggins

Head so full and flat

Outside air and garden calm

Clear head dull forgotten

overwriting history

Remember, Tulsa

 

"Dreaming of Castles: Four Haikus for Online Learners" by Irwin DeVries

Spinning electrons

Fling words toward the horizon

Distant seabirds call

 

Seekers from afar

Ignite digital spaces

The blue of peacocks

 

Through their glowing screens

They interrogate the world

Leaves turn to the sun

 

Fingers tap letters

Circuits spark in sympathy

Trout leaps, ripples spread

 

Beverly deVries

from caring is born

the winds of our future

enveloping all with hope

 

Elizabeth Childs' 11-year-old daughter (!)

Vibrant the castle

Daffodils sea of yellow

Lekwungen spirit

 

"Cedar" by Maria Bremner

Cathedral of life

Monuments spiral skyward

For you, hummingbird
