Anastasia at Small Poems is hosting us today for the first Friday of December. She's asking the question "What is Story?" and reflecting on her first acceptance letter for something she wrote.
This week my copy of Fractured Cattails, the Haiku Society of America Member Anthology arrived. The theme for the book was elements. It was a joy to see other Poetry Friday Community members, Marcie Flinchum Atkins and Robyn Hood Black share the pages with me. Also sharing the pages was Amy Losak, author of H is for Haiku and Wing Strokes Haiku. Both books feature the haiku of her mother. I reached out to Amy and asked to share her haiku. Amy's haiku is so perfect for this moment. Granted we are into a waning autumn but still prayers don't seem enough. I will share my haiku that's in the anthology next week. next week.
Join Us, You're Invited!
