Aaron Barry is an English major at Simon Fraser University, an ESL teacher, and, when the stars align, a poet. He fancies himself a Byronic hero, but knows he isn't nearly handsome enough to be one. His primarily humorous poems have been featured in over twenty magazines, including Modern Haiku, Frogpond, and bottle rockets, and he is currently working on a full-length haiku collection.

Awards and Other Honors:

2019 Write On! Contest: Honourable Mention in Fiction category; included in a hole in the light Red Moon Press Anthology of English-Language Haiku 2018, edited by Jim Kacian.

Selected Work
among the whole lot
not a single astronaut―
high school reunion
shifting cumulus 
         we make plans
    to make plans
always the bridesmaid . . .
a release dove
fails to take flight
mother's birthday―
time to think outside
the chocolate box
bedridden . . .
the wings of the butterfly
brushing against the moon
of all the days
for this to happen . . .
flow tide
