EarthRise Rolling Haiku Collaborative 2019 at The Haiku Foundation

Please see Jim Kacian’s post, EarthRise Rolling Haiku Collaborative 2019 for more information, guidelines, and poems.

I posted these two poems there today:

loved for years
and now I know your name
blue chicory

weathered fir trees
strong and beautiful
my time of healing

hard years show
I let them show
growing anew

on bare branches – how gold
remaining leaves

Some of the same life lessons returned in 2018, in another health way. I am grateful for kind and good care. This is a new life chapter.

Charlotte Digregorio’s Writer’s Blog

Charlotte Digregorio’s Writer’s Blog is a good resource. She features a poet and poem every day, and sometimes I reblog a post here. The poet may be someone I know through our WordPress sites, through volunteer work at The Haiku Foundation, or another reason. I love to learn, and read all the poems.

Charlotte was the Regional Coordinator for the Midwest at the Haiku Society of America, when I reconnected years ago with that organization. Julie Warther is our current Coordinator for the Midwest Region.

I have always lived in the Midwest, USA. I am retired now, and blog in an informal way. Thank you for your visits!
