Poetry Friday--Newly Released
The latest issues of The Heron's Nest, Notes from the Gean, and haijinx are now available online.
At The Heron's Nest, Volume XII, Number 4: December, 2010, I have a haiku here.
I hit the jackpot with Notes from the Gean, Vol. 2, Issue 3 - December 2010, where I have haiku, tanka, and haiga! Make sure you check out the haiga, they look really AWESOME, if I do say so myself!
And, after a long delay, haijinx III:1 (December 2010) is out. The journal ceased publication in 2003 and was supposed to be back this past summer. Better a little late than never! I have two haiga in this issue. The first one is a photo of the baby woodchucks that lived, for a time, in my backyard. The other, uses a Japanese print from the Library of Congress collection.
I was commenting to a friend the other day that I think I can finally say I'm a poet! Those words still ring a false note, though--I think I'm my own worst enemy.
Here's an original tanka that kind of sums it up:
words don't match
the pictures in her head--
her newly published work
and wishes for a do-over
Thank you, dear reader, for indulging me today!
