I enjoy reviewing my archives here and there.  Here are a few posts from past Junes.

Summer Haiku by Carol Purington – 2017

In June 2016, I reblogged a poem by Billie Wilson from Charlotte DiGregorio’s Writer’s Blog.  This is from her Daily Haiku ongoing series.  (Links go to Charlotte’s site for this note.)

Tanka by Carol Purington

From the root-cellar
the last of the winter squash
still succulent,
the poem you wrote recalling
a grandmother’s hearty soup

Haiku Registry at The Haiku Foundation

Ellen Grace Olinger – 2016

The Haiku Registry is edited and managed by Billie Wilson, at The Haiku Foundation.

When I began my volunteer work in education at THF (2012), the registry was part of my general background reading.  I learned so much, from reading the Poet Profiles.  And I continue to read there often.  For example, I may be interested in learning more about a poet, after reading a poem on a blog, or learning of a book by a poet.

You can read my Poet Profile page here.

I took the photos of the daylilies last summer.
