World Haiku Series 2022 (30) Haiku by Ed Bremson (USA)

Haiku by Ed Bremson

the lyrics

that poets write…

Earth’s hum

rising mist

mountains hide

the morning sun


all the things given to us

by the mountain

cherry trees, mountains…

the things God has given us

to shower with love

Consulate-General of Japan in Toronto

global warming…

the known world flooded

with unknowns

straight and tall the pines,

surely they won’t miss us

when we’re gone

troubled planet…

oh how I miss the koi pond

of my youth

Fourth prize Raven Haiku Contest


to this Earthly existence…

the freedom in dreams

all over the world

the fading light of reason,

the pulsing of clocks

another new year…

again we begin

with hope


The Yin/Yang haiga, collaboration with Hemapriya Chellappan artist, Ed Bremson poet, published 2022 in Failed Haiku. The dogwood haiga previously unpublished.
