Haiku by Jim Kacian from Montage: The Book

windy day i think in music

Bach fugue–
the ordered flight
of wild geese

(from Gallery Five: In Concert)

pain fading the days back to wilderness

camping alone one star then many

(from Gallery ThirtyOne: Birthdays II)

how gentle the wind
in predawn rose light
after the harvest moon
I begin October
with small and growing hopes

Haiga 365 by Kris Kennedy

Earlier this week, I wrote a haiku in response to a haiga by Kris Kennedy on her blog.  Her post is called “The Talons of Hope;” November 5, 2012.

Yesterday Kris created a lovely new post with my new tree poem.  Please visit her blog, HAIGA 365, if you have a moment sometime.  Her link is http://www.haiku365.wordpress.com.

Here’s my new haiku:

weathered trees
steeled my soul
said I would recover

Today Margaret Dornaus posted a beautiful and moving collection of remembrance poems and other art on her Haiku-Doodle blog, “Day of the Dead III.”  Many artists, with links to their sites, are included.

It is good to honor and remember.  Peace as you remember too.
