Haiku ~ Scott Metz

we learn her name--  
the girl in the ocean  
out too far spring snow . . .
  whispering into
  the horse's ear
today's rain . . .  
a symphony  
in three movements spring grass--
  my bicycle path
  from yesterday
first peony  
deeper inside  
the short grass  

Scott Metz was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania, America, in 1976. He graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 1999 with a BA in Engish. He became aware of haiku when he was 17 years old, upon reading J. D. Salinger's short story "Teddy" in his book Nine Stories. Afterward, he immediately began studying and practicing haiku. At the moment, he lives and teaches English in Tsuyama, Okayama, Japan, where he also met and fell in love with his wife. He has had haiku published in Frogpond and The Heron's Nest. He has haiku and senryu forthcoming in Frogpond, The Heron's Nest, TUNDRA, bottle rockets, and Modern Haiku.
