A new issue of A Hundred Gourds has just been released, containing three of my haiku, as well as two rengay I wrote with Angela Terry and Julie Warther. Since AHG has asked for exclusive online rights for a period of 40 days following publication, I will not be posting my haiku and rengay from March yet, but you can read them on their website.

However, that means I can now post my haiku that appeared in A Hundred Gourds 2:1, December 2012.

on the windowpane…
letting go


Perseids shower
the blurred edges
of last night’s dream


boxes of memories
that aren’t mine


Also in the December issue are three “empty nest” rengay I wrote with Angela Terry and Julie Warther  last summer: “Waning Moon”, “A Different Blue”, and “Grade Five Rapids”.

December Haiku Share

This haiku appeared in a rengay I wrote over the summer, with Angela Terry and Julie Warther. It very closely reflects my life right now, as my youngest child puts the finishing touches on his college applications. Share a haiku about college, leaving home, autumn color, autumn in general, color in general, empty nests, or coffee. Or even tables.
