Alice Frampton

Seabeck, Washington
Alice Frampton, a retired childcare worker, discovered haiku in January of 2000. Her poems appear in many journals, association anthologies, contest results, and some books. In 2006, she coordinated the Haiku Canada annual meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, and in 2007 she helped compile Echoes, a reunion of poets published in A New Resonance anthologies by Red Moon Press. And in 2008, with Michael Dylan Welch, she cofounded Haiku Northwest's annual Seabeck Haiku Getaway. She currently enjoys beachcombing and teaching haiku to elementary school children.

he rocks
on her wake

Independence Day—
slipping into the lake
for a midnight swim

on the billboard the word “big”

cloudy water
in the bud vase—
children grown and gone
