the piano hammers

2006 Robert Spiess Memorial Haiku Award, Second Place



Note by the Guest Editor:

These poems have been pulled from my ever-growing document of favorite haiku.

Some I have admired for years, while others I have newly discovered. This is the

joy of poetry, as of life: its ever-changing course of discovery. I encourage all

readers of poetry to keep such a file. As far as has been possible, I have obtained

permission from the writers to share them.

Telling us about the care that should be taken during winter. The hammers barely move. And the soft falling of the snow is so beautifully juxtaposed with the piano. Nice!!

the piano hammers barely moving - which means the musician is playing very, very softly.

And I can almost hear the snow fall Haiku can't get more subtle than this.
