Before I sign off though I do want to share a little bit of good news, namely that I had a haiku accepted by The Heron's Nest on January 1st. I was ecstatic, given that, for me, it's a very difficult market to get into. It will be appearing in the March 2015 issue.
I've also participated in two renku that were accepted for publication, and have a couple more haiku which will be appearing in the March issue of A Hundred Gourds, so the year is starting off well!
The results for the Polish International Haiku Competition were finally posted though, and unfortunately, I didn't win anything. Ah well, now I can resubmit my entry elsewhere, and I look forward to settling in and reading all the winning entries. :)
Here is also a sampling of my haiku that have been published over the last few months:
of old women
~Prune Juice Journal, November 2014
the trees dissolve
into evening sky
~Brass Bell Journal, December 2014
a monarch flickers
out of view
a pink seahorse
~A Hundred Gourds, December 2014
the touch of sunlight
on a grackle
a gibbous moon
swallows the stars
~Cattails, January 2015
Thanks for reading, Happy New Year again, and see you all in February!
