Another Lost Shark

I don't have a new haiku for today, but wanted to share a link and get back into the routine of posting daily.

Over at his blog Another Lost Shark, Australian haiku poet Graham Nunn is chronicling his newborn son's first 30 days of life with a poem a day. They've been stunning so far. Here is his poem for Day 7:

what happens between
heartbeats is neither life
nor death, but something
ships do, darker and deeper
than the ocean: that instant
where prow hangs and
the world could go
with the next swell
or under

-- Graham Nunn

A wonderful project and poet.
