              My goal for Poetry MonthA haiku diary that may include other forms related to haiku, like haibun, haiga. monoku or renga. My first poem speaks of why I am handwriting the poems.

  1. I love this Charles Simic quote at the top of your page today!
    This poem of yours today is exactly how I feel about being out in nature - it becomes sacred space.

    1. Thanks, Cheriee. I love that you love the quote, and knowing what a seamstress you are, I think I know why!

  2. This is so like Emily Dickinson's poem "Some keep the sabbath going to church." Lovely image of birds singing on a beautiful Sunday.

    1. Thanks, Glenda, for sharing the connection. It was a beautiful morning.


Thanks for visiting!
