December Haiku Share

And yet another haiku I wrote as part of a rengay, this one with Kirsten Cliff. As I currently live in “the City of Roses”, I would be totally remiss if I didn’t include at least one haiku that mentions roses, even though blooming roses right now are but a distant memory. Share a haiku/tanka/haiga about roses, any kind of flower, or  a pleasant scent.

Upcoming Publications

It’s been silent on my blog ever since the 31 prompters, 31 days challenge on NaHaiWriMo ended on August 31. That’s jointly due to the back-to-school busyness, and also to all the journals and contests that have their deadlines between August 15 and September 15. I can’t even think how many haiku, senryu, and rengay I must have submitted. But it all pays off in the end: I have works that will appear in the following publications this fall:

  • 2 haiku, plus a rengay with Kirsten Cliff, to appear in Aubrie Cox’s Every Road Takes Me to the Sea post
  • 1 haiku, to appear in Modern Haiku
  • 2 haiku, plus a rengay with Angela Terry and Julie Warther, to appear in Frogpond
  • 1 haiku, to appear in Acorn
  • 3 haiku, plus 3 rengay with Angela Terry and Julie Warther, to appear in A Hundred Gourds
  • an interview with Ina Roy and Andrea Heiberg, to appear on in our books
  • 2 haiku, to appear in tinywords
  • 1 haiku, to appear in Mariposa

Recent publications include:
