Haiku 4 U

today it is hot
children swimming at the pool
bare feet on concrete

Update on the Renga . . .

Message from

Hi everyone,

Just a note to let you know that we're going to use a mosaic by artist Lora Jost for the book cover since a mosaic symbolizes how we create the renga, piece by piece. We're working with Denise Low and Mammoth Publications, plus the great book designer (and poet) Leah Sewell, to try to get the book out by mid-November.

Thanks so much,
Plans continue for the Renga, the published book and the caravan tour.  Stay tuned for additional updates.

Haiku 4U!

scales like a fish, shine
wings beat rapidly in air
beaks drink sweet nectar

Thursday's Quote me

Some people say, “Never let them see you cry.” I say, if you’re so mad you could just cry, then cry. It terrifies everyone.

Time for the Renga (Preview)

  1.  Jose Faus - June 6 (post July 18)

Near Points of Rock
one even-toed ungulate
sniffs ancient winds
tramples barren seeds
shreds scruff grass
rolls in shallow wallow
lumbers to a slope
where a contract traveler
in one shot settles a score
oblivious to the season’s tone

Using the post above, I contributed to the conversation with the post below.

  1. Lydia Lowe - June 8 (post July 20)
           Sitting, half hidden behind thick, green, leaves
           with a view to the kill
           and bearing silent witness,
           is a boy who thought he was a man.
           A tear runs down his cheek
           and he feels like a child again,
           longing to run away, hide, and yet,
           to scared to move with a contract killer
           creeping closer, still on the loose
           down below.

Haiku 4 U!

deep bright colors shine
delicate paper flowers
in among the spines

long green leaves and stalks
petals like droopy dog ears
with a crown on top
