Ed Higgins

five scifaiku

the moon’s peak–
spring’s shrill rut
a braying mist worm

scorching solar winds        all surface mining stopped

stand in straight ranks
in boring rain

oh, this replacement brain        still empty inside

leftover pin fruit–
high in the dar-dar tree
gathering star-wings

ED HIGGINS‘s poems and short fiction have appeared in various print and online journals, including Scifaikuest and multiple other haiku/short-form journals. He and his wife live on a small farm South of Portland, OR. He teaches writing and literature at George Fox University.
