Here is the first haiku from our Featured Haiku Writer – Isabel Caves. Isabel is a poet and fiction writer who loves to share all the weird and wonderful things that tumble from her mind. Read more of her creativity at Isabel’s Blog.

This gentle, almost soft haiku stood out to me from the first read through. I like the way memory acts as a portal.

This haiku is part of our PORTAL theme!

Floating gracefully
In the cool spring breeze without
Knowing where I land

I enjoyed the airiness of this haiku and the clever structuring of the sentences.

a moss-covered tree
weaves her nest: layered whispers,
leaves, and feathered hope

Jill is a writer-naturalist: pebbles in her pocket, knees in the grass, connecting human hearts to wild places. Find out more about Jill’s work at Spicy.
I like the clever use of language to build up the image of the nest and the hope of life.

silver into gold
willow flower blooms erupt
allow leaves to droop

I love the way the coldness of winter melts into spring, particularly when the willow trees bud and pour forth their leaves.

slender stalk uncurls
stark and barren twig until
tender flag unfurls

Tracy Moore wears many hats including those of poet and writer. All of them are pointy, as weaving together words in a way that impacts others is akin to crafting a spell. Read more at her delightful blog at Pull Up A Toadstool.
I enjoyed the contrast between the barren twig and the tender flag.

radiant droplets
lit, suspended from dark twigs
after the hailstorm
