HAIKU POETRY DAY 2011!

Today, is a day to celebrate the haiku form of poetry.

Here is one that I wrote on observing the winter solstice.

WINTER TREE LIGHT!

HAIKU ON WINTER SOLSTICE

Winter solstice light

brightens bare branches of trees

December delight!

Enjoy the longer days!

NOVEMBER WORDS!

Poetry news!

Just received news that a forthcoming anthology entitled:

Launch!

taking a bite of the apple–revelations is gone to print!

The book includes my poem Girls and Green Apples along with works by several local writers with whom I am so glad to be included. I have included, here, a glimpse of the book launch flyer. The event will occur in early December. It will be available to add to your Autumn Reads!

November has been a busy month for writing poetry!

Each day, I have participated in a month-long poetry challenge with Poetic Asides, an online group that I first met a couple of years ago. This is the second November challenge for me in this group of amazing poets, real wordsmiths with a lot of heart!

On this special weekend, I thought I would share a poem with readers of this blog. Here is a photo I took of this week’s ice storm impact & the related Haiku that I wrote for November daily challenge.
