Warren Lee Gossett

Born: January 24 1942 in Palisade Colorado, USA
Resides: Twin Falls, Idaho, USA

I am a semi-retired Idaho native, having spent most of my adult career in print journalism. and am now a full-time artist, painting and selling oil landscape and still-life paintings. I'm relatively new to Japanese short form poetry but have developed a love for the poetry over the past several years, especially haiku and haiga. My Japanese short form poetry has been published in Simply Haiku, The Heron’s Nest, Notes from the Gean, Frogpond, Shreve Memorial Library Electronic Poetry Network (Shreveport, LA), Haigaonline, Haiku Harvest, World Haiku Review, TinyWords, Mainichi Daily News, Clouds Peak, and I have participated in several collaborations.

Selected Work
a snow goose
cups its wings to land— 
curve of the shore
cicada husks
clinging to the screen door
. . . autumn deepens
county fair
rising sparrows
trail ribbons of dust
field mice 
forage the corn bin 
. . . harvest moon
river's mouth
the osprey disappears
into mist
frigid morning
the brittle echo
of a crow
