Greetings, Poetry Lovers!
Lucky me... Look what came in the mail! As part of Tabatha Yeatts's fabulous poem swap adventures, I received a special delivery from Jone MacCulloch, all the way from Oregon.
In addition to a wonderful personal Christmas card, Jone included one of her fabulous and clever haiku/photography calendars for 2021 - Can it come soon enough?! - and a beautiful handmade dragonfly ornament in porcelain, from an artist in Oregon, Dorothy Steele. (I loved the spiderweb pattern in its center, and read that the artist uses her mother's crocheted doilies and cookie cutters to create each ornament.)
And, of course, Jone sent a poem! A haiku wending its way through the designs of a wonderful deer illustration. So cheerful, it's the perfect sentiment to leave you with as I wave a hearty Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays - I hope you and yours have a joyful and safe holiday season.
