A Sense of Place: Meadows & Fields

The Haiku Foundation’s weekly column, A Sense of Place, has recently focused on  meadows and fields. From the sense of sight, hearing, taste, and touch respectively, K.J. Munro selected these haiku of mine. It is always gratifying when someone else, other than family, finds a haiku worthy enough to be included. Thanks, KJ; it is appreciated.

tall grasses wave

in the meadow

blue bird boxes


the trill

of red-winged blackbirds

meadow grasses



rings the meadow

she eats the wild grapes


butterflies in the meadow

the cottony milkweed seeds

in her hand

Nancy Brady, 2018


The column has now moved on to the subject of Hiking trails. See all the haiku at the  Haiku Foundation’s website: http://www.thehaikufoundation.org . New haiku are posted every Wednesday.


About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    Excellent. I can picture every haiku clearly 🙂

    I haven’t submitted to my local newspapers subscribers magazine in a bit. But pure haiku included one of my entries on Portals –

    photo – aperture
    captures what I think I see
    once printed, there’s more

    I’ve also had a feature over at Frank’s haikai challenge:
    A reverse haibun:
    Lighting the Way?

    • I love your haiku over at Pure Haiku. Isn’t that always the way? With photos? It always shows us more than we expected. Our focus may not be the only thing it captures. I will check out the Lighting the Way.

      Thanks; if you can see the ‘picture I have painted’ then my haiku succeeds, JP. ~nan
