98days until
the Seabeck Haiku Getaway

Stephen A. Peters

Bellingham, Washington

When the ying and the yang are somewhat in balance and the phase of the moon is right, Stephen A. Peters enjoys writing haiku, senyru, and tanka. The poems included here have previously been published in the Haiku Society of America literary journal Frogpond.


farmers’ market
behind the vegetables
a faded shirt


hospital light
a shirt turned
inside out


class reunion
the most likely to succeed
borrows a cigarette


scudding clouds
the bride expresses
second thoughts


false spring
the steam rising
from woolen gloves
