Happy New Year!
I'm still getting my sea legs back after travel up in the hills to see family for the holidays, and after the little retail rush of December in my shop. I hope you and yours had a lovely holiday.
For haiku fans, I've just updated information on the Haiku Society of America meeting/workshop Earth Day weekend I'm coordinating in April on the coast of Georgia. Here's a link to that recent post below (or you can find it on the SE Regional page at the HSA website). A registration form is available on my Haiku page, at the top left.
Since we're going on a birdwatching Ginko (a haiku walk) that weekend, here are a few more of my own bird haiku that seem to work for this time of year; both light and dark and in-between, as I am feeling all of the above right about now:
the twitter of a hundred robins
in the oak
Modern Haiku, Volume 45.1, Winter/Spring 2014
the unanswered call
of a dove
Frogpond Volume 35:3, Autumn 2012
turkey vultures circling
one of their own
The Heron's Nest, June 2012

[Pssst.... A little bird has told me a Poetry Friday-er or two might attend the St. Simon's weekend!]
Our beautiful Linda, no stranger to writing haiku, has this week's Roundup at TeacherDance (with a Japanese proverb and intriguing picture of birds at the top of the page, I might add!)
Here's wishing you a 2017 full of poetry, and light....
