Best Traditional Haiku
By Steven Robert Allen
A couple more Republican presidential administrations, and there won't be any more nature worth haikuing about. So enjoy it while it lasts! Grand Imperial Mistress of Haiku Gail Miller gets a $25 gift certificate to Bookworks, a $20 certificate to the District and two passes to the Guild Cinema for a haiku that I suppose could best be labeled neotraditional. Whatever you call it, it's a beauty.
Over bleached salt flats
Strands of green kelp, locked
A leaf falls, twig snaps
Oranges tossed upon
Late frost fingers pinch
