Creative Notes: Two Books

I am reading A Moment’s Longing, Haiku Society of America Members’ Anthology 2019. Tanya McDonald served as our Editor this year. Please visit the Haiku Society of America for more information.

My poem in the book:

one red tulip
blooms in the hosta border
time alone with God

Another new book I am reading this year is Walking the Fence: Selected Tanka of Randy Brooks (2019, Brooks Books; Taylorville, Illinois). Please visit Brooks Books Haiku for more information.
