D. Claire Gallagher, Editor, selected this haiku for the Members’ Anthology 2000, Haiku Society of America. The book is called Crinkled Sunshine.
I still love to watch the barges on Lake Michigan. Today we have a winter storm, yet we know there will be spring again. I remember writing this poem. I had to make some changes for health and family reasons. A beautiful new life slowly grew, from deeper roots. One day at a time. Over time. I am retired now. My overall goal with my blogs is to offer hope.

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!
