a wattle seedpod, haiku by lorin ford – Book of the Week at The Haiku Foundation

Today I enjoyed reading a wattle seedpod, haiku by lorin ford.  Jim Kacian’s post introduces her book, and highlights that Lorin Ford writes from Australia.  His post then links to the complete book in THF Digital Library.

Lorin Ford is the Haiku Editor, Managing Editor of the journal, A Hundred Gourds.

Trumpet Vines And Time


how the
trumpet vines
grew on the wall
of my mother’s home
like her faith
her unconditional love
when God said
“It’s time . . .”

Trumpet Vines filled a wall of my first home.  I always love seeing them bloom, and saw them again recently.  They inspired this poem for my mother, which was published in Bell’s Letters Poet 125 (2011).


Haiku NZ – My Favourite Haiku, edited by Sandra Simpson

Originally posted on Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin:

Awhile ago, I registered for The Haiku Foundation Forums.  This summer I wrote some posts for Soundings, moderated by Peter Yovu.  The posts are in appreciation of poems by various poets.  I went back to my early years with haiku, and my posts all connect with the Midwest USA, in some way.

Sandra Simpson thought readers of My Favourite Haiku at Haiku NZ might enjoy some of my posts.  There are many collections there now, and mine is for August 2014.

Sandra’s beautiful blogs are: breath, a collection of haiku and Sandra’s Garden.
