Time Of Singing – Edited by Lora H. Zill

I recently received the new issue of TIME OF SINGING (TOS); Volume 39 “Intermezzo.”  The Fall issue is a “half issue” and includes Book Reviews and Book Announcements as well as poems.  The website link is http://www.timeofsinging.com. You can link to their Facebook Page from there, if you wish.

Thanks to Lora H. Zill for including a tanka I wrote last month. TIME OF SINGING is a print journal.

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

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

Haiku – Three Questions, Edited By Curtis Dunlap


Blogging Along Tobacco Road, a website created and edited by Curtis Dunlap, includes the Haiku Three Questions Series; which in turn includes many poets.

I reread my Three Questions answers, which include three of my best haiku–for my father and grandmothers–this weekend.  I realized that I described my journey to haiku.  You’ll find the links to all the poets’ answers in the right sidebar of the Tobacco Road site.
