Haiku by Brad Bennett

grackle play
the iridescence
of solar panels

pond goslings…
a mom mimics
her toddler’s delight

the blank slate
of new snow…
juncos

winter solstice
a nuthatch turns
upside down

dripping icicles
a robin plucks
holly berries

Brad Bennett is an elementary school teacher who lives near Boston. He started writing haiku seriously about ten years ago and has published two books of haiku, a drop of pond, which won a 2016 Touchstone Award from the Haiku Foundation, and a turn in the river, published in 2019. He has taught haiku to children and adults in a variety of settings. He is very grateful for haiku in his life.
