cherry blossom petals

Back in February, I saw a notice that haiku about blossoms were wanted for “Haiku for Hope”, an art exhibit that was raising funds for a cancer hospital back east. Few causes are nearer or dearer to my heart, and so I sent along a couple of my haiku that had received Honorable Mentions in the latest Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival.

I am pleased to have one haiku selected to be matched with a photograph, and that the exhibition is viewable online, through an article in The Baltimore Sun. It made it even more special that I know two of the other haiku poets whose haiku were also selected: Roberta Beary and Charlotte Digregorio. Proceeds from this art show go towards Howard County General Hospital’s Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center.
