magic brew

Put the kettle on

Special is a cup of tea

Giving you a break

grow lights

There’s a million dreams

Within each beam of sunshine

The magic of green

colored water

Sudden, spring shower

Pouring down through the sunshine

Left us a rainbow

International Haiku Poetry Day 2017

This IS April 17th and that means I am in my glory!  Why? Because this is International Haiku Poetry Day!!  (woot woot) Now, this is National Poetry Month (all April long) and Int’l Haiku Poetry Day, so I have combined them and declared Int’l Haiku Poetry Month-Day…  (a woman’s prerogative)

https://www.thehaikufoundation.org/international-haiku-poetry-day/

If ever there was a poetry format I have embraced with every fiber of my being, it IS Haiku. Honestly, I will hear a phrase I like in my head and immediately I will hold up my left hand and use my right index finger to count out the syllables. If it doesn’t work out, I keep re-writing until it does.  Some say it’s a curse but I say it’s FUN!!

 So, what am I doing to celebrate? I have released my latest collection of Haiku, A Haiku Perspective 2017 on Kindle.  That’s right, you can visit my Author Central Page and find both the paperback (if you are so inclined) as well as the Kindle version.  I am most excited to have this book available in both formats as I know there are those who would rather have an eBook.  Me? I actually prefer to hold a paperback in my hands. There’s something intoxicating about paper and ink. (must be those memories of mimeograph machines)

Whatever you are doing to celebrate… do it in 5-7-5 style

Join in on the fun

Express yourself in haiku

Just because you can
