A Beginning

How to begin? It starts with a wish or a dream to write and share. Why here? Why now? I’m not sure. I only know that I love my work as a landscape designer and nurserywoman (grower of plants). I also love poetry – not all poetry but those short Japanese inspired poems that can be spoken in one breath – haiku. My work inspires my poems and my poems deepen my appreciation for my work. I’d like to share this process and in doing so learn more.

It is my intention to grow my poetry and poet my garden. If I can shed any light on this symbiotic relationship I will be very very happy.
