Carole MacRury

Point Roberts, Washington

The Pacific Northwest is the main source of inspiration for Carole MacRury’s poetry and photography. Through her camera and pen, she seeks moments in nature that echo the human condition, although on occasion a senryu writes itself! Her photographs can be found on the covers of Modern Haiku and the Tanka Society of America’s quarterly journal, Ribbons. Her most recent publication is Snapshot Press’s Haiku Calendar 2008. She has enjoyed many publications in both international and North American journals and anthologies. Secretary/treasurer of the Tanka Society of America, she also works for and supports the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival’s annual international Haiku Invitational.

winter dusk

the old rowboat

fills with snow

late afternoon—

the fullness

of the cow’s udder

lilac in full bloom—

bees bumping

into bees

election results—

low-tide clams

spit seawater

summer cottage—

last year’s mosquitoes

still on the wall
