haiku notes and poems


I’ve been going through my blogs and updating a few posts.  Last year, I was honored to be included in the March 2013 Per Diem collection at The Haiku Foundation (THF).  Carmen Sterba edited the collection.  The theme is “Judeo-Christian Traditions.”

Stella Pierides is the Per Diem Project Manager.  There is an archive of all the Per Diem collections, with a new collection added every month.  There is a wide variety of themes.  Here is the link:  http://thehaikufoundation.org/per-diem-archive.

Carmen Sterba included this poem of mine:

reading the Psalms path to the water

I’m also preparing my submission for The Haiku Society Of America 2014 Members’ Anthology, which is a printed book.  Gary Hotham is the editor this year.  Here is the link to their home page.  The information about the Members’ Anthology is filed under NEWS.  http://www.hsa-haiku.org

This poem is one of your favorites.

one red tulip
blooms in the hosta border
time alone with God

I wrote this haiku yesterday, and posted it in the comments for the March Per Diem today:

Good Friday
shadows of trees
on the road
