Posts Tagged ‘Life: Haiku by Haiku’

Through the internet I’ve made the acquaintance of a number of wonderful authors, whether online or in print or both.  Other than my blog, several newsletter and a long-running column in a home school magazine, I’m not a published author…with two recent exceptions.  One of my 100-word stories, written for Friday Fictioneers, has been published in a collection of  100-word stories (for Kindle and in book form) and one of my haiku was just recently published in Jan Morrill’s new “Life: Haiku by Haiku.”  The haiku featured are all hers, with the exception of mine and one by John J. Han, professor and published haiku poet.

Jan’s also published a wonderful book, “The Red Kimono“,about the Japanese internment during WWII.  My haiku was written in response to the title of that book.  Today I’m using a photo of the red kimono our younger daughter brought back from Japan for me as the background for my haiku.
