haiku and tanka poems

It’s too early for the local boat dock to be put back into the water, but images from other years came to mind yesterday.  I read a haiku by Martin Gottlieb Cohen at tinywords.com.  I posted a new tanka in the comments.

Here is the link to Martin’s featured poem: http://www.tinywords.com/2013/03/11/12184.

This is my new poem in the comments for Martin’s poem:

after the boat dock
back in the water
on the pilings

On a different topic, there are many new posts at The Haiku Foundation troutswirl blog, as they introduce new programs and features.  Today I am learning more about the Book of the Week Archive – Selected by Tom Clausen.  They are preserving early books of haiku by noted poets online, as they continue to grow their archive.  http://www.thehaikufoundation.org
