November
few leaves
left on the lilac
living with
your loss

As an additional note today, I wrote this poem the first autumn after my mother’s winter passing (2004).  The lilacs have bloomed many more times since then.

At the time, the key word in this poem for me was loss.

Now I know the key word is living – and I am grateful every day.

Thank you,
Ellen Grace Olinger

Two Books In Print

WelcomingHopeCoverBorder

We have two books in print.  They can both be ordered at the Time Of Singing books page.  You will note that the price is 5 dollars per copy, and 3 for 12 dollars.  You can combine this special offer with both books.  All proceeds benefit TOS.

Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in need is a poetry anthology, edited with Lora Homan Zill and Charles A. Waugaman.  Charles created the beautiful cover art, and illustrated the book.  There is a description of the book and a list of the poets at the Time Of Singing books page.

Quiet Christmas Poetry is my large print chapbook, created from my site of the same name.

Thank you!

My Poet Profile at the Haiku Registry, and two haiku

Billie Wilson is the editor and manager for the Haiku Registry at The Haiku Foundation.  I am grateful for her help with my Poet Profile page.  The current selection of my haiku includes both an early poem, and a more recent poem, from Time Of Singing (TOS), a journal I have often mentioned here.  Lora Homan Zill is the editor for TOS.  Charles A. Waugaman was editor when I began with the journal some time ago.
