Greetings, Poetry Lovers - Happy Friday the 13th!
Much on our collective minds this week, I know. I so enjoyed a recent email exchange with my St. Augustine area haiku peeps (they kindly adopted me a couple-few years ago, and I'm just a few hours up the coast!).
I thought others might also appreciate the haiku that these talented folks tucked at the end of their messages.
Time, the calendar, seasons – this current time we're in. All of these things are on my mind, often, and are folded into these gems of poems below. Enjoy!

Okay, and one from me for today, about the current state of affairs:

Wishing safety and good health all around. At least we can enjoy some fine poetry without leaving home. Now, keep time with Matt at Radio, Rhythm and Rhyme for this week's Roundup!
