December 10, 2013 I began a new site, Quiet Christmas Poetry, this year. http://quietchristmaspoetry.wordpress.com
The Advent acrostic is a favorite poem of many readers. It is the first poem on the new Christmas site.
Thank you and blessings, Ellen
windy day i think in music
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

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:
steeled my soul
said I would recover
still life painting
outside my window
