Barry George

A lifelong poet, Barry George has been writing haiku for about seven years. He lives with his wife, Heidi, and cats, Avi and Naia, in Philadelphia where he teaches community college English and coordinates a statewide campaign to improve part-time faculty salaries. In his haiku, he is especially interested in capturing the street and natural life around the city.

pink begonias
deepening
the grey fall

wind chimes
sharper, clearer
after snow


cats at twilight--
I am the magician
filling their bowls

pines' darkness--
creek smelts glitter
with the moon


driving from the beach
in winter twilight
...the sky today
