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

Please see WELCOME TO TINYWORDS 19.1 for the introduction to the new issue by Editors Kathe L. Palka and Peter Newton.

I enjoyed reading Carole MacRury’s winning poem for the recent prompt, and my poem, “Wisconsin winter,” is also featured.

Thank you,

three poems

mild December day
pheasants in fields
apples still on some trees
poems to write and
poetry journals to read

family tablecloths
passed on to me
they look like
the art I select
for my blogs

family party
blessed and now past
resting with haiku

Blog Review – 1,000 Posts

Thanks to WordPress for the notifications. I had not realized this site had reached 1,000 posts. My post today continues the review I began yesterday.

The titles in this post link to the original posts here at Haiku Art Site, which in turn link to the other sites and content mentioned.

Hope you enjoy the past posts – and discover other sites and haiku resources that may be new for you today.

“In the acorn lies the Oak” – this saying is from a vintage drawing by William Walker at Reusable Art. I am grateful for the public domain art sites.

Thanks to all the editors, artists, and publishers in general. And how amazing that vintage art can be shared again online. I learn more about art history.

Mann Library’s Daily Haiku – edited by Tom Clausen. In the post I mention this good resource for haiku.

The Archives there are organized by author and month.

This Creative Notes post links to a haiku book by Margarita Engle that you can read at The Haiku Foundation (THF). The introduction at THF is by Garry Eaton.

You may also wish to visit The Haiku Foundation Forums.

In a future post, I’ll review some of my haiku and tanka so far, along with other resources that may be of interest and useful to you. 

Thank you,
Ellen Grace Olinger
