Haiku published in a new anthology

The Rochester Area Haiku Poets put out an anthology this spring - last ginkgo leaf - featuring local haiku poets, and the collection includes some of mine:

mother's rosary -
threads still hold
where links have broken

Father's Day -
the coolness
of his headstone

just before dawn
saving the end of the book
for later

winter moonlight -
the rise and fall of her
remaining breast

clear summer night -
my ex-wife's voice
when my daughter speaks

April morning –
cardinals in conclave
at the bird feeder

animal carcass
on the shoulder of the road
I don’t look – I look

your coffee cup
still on the table
half full

All of mine had been published previously, but it was nice to see them come out again, and to be featured among the haiku of so many fine poets. 
Pax et bonum
