178days until
the Seabeck Haiku Getaway

Seren Fargo

Bellingham, Washington
 
I have been writing poetry on and off for many years—more seriously in the last few years following the death of my boyfriend in 2007. After receiving a book of haiku from a friend, the pages of my poetry journal soon became filled with haiku. I enjoy the challenge of saying so much with so few words. I have published several haiku and other poems in various journals, including White Lotus, Bottle Rockets, and Asahi Weekly. I started the Bellingham Haiku Group in 2009, and welcome haiku poets in and around Bellingham to join us (you can email me at serenfargohaiku [at] hotmail [dot] com).
 
 
mourning the death
of a man I never met—
passenger pigeons
 
 
evening meditation—
snowflakes go this way
then that
 
 
spring warm-up
birds practice their
mating calls
 
 
sunny day—
telling time by my cat’s
choice of window
 
 
turning leaves—
my child’s crayons
scattered on the floor
