contrails and foxtails
a wispy wave
to the morning


It’s the last day of February, 2019, and the ending to my practice of writing at least one haiku per day for National Haiku Writers Month–always February. I missed only a couple of days including yesterday. The practice of writing a daily haiku is more of an exercise in taking a closer look at moments that often get ignored or diluted in busy-ness. It’s also a great practice in articulating and editing just enough to give these moments breath and respect. For all of this and more–I am grateful.


beginnings and endings
false starts and fine finishes
always in the editing

  1. I’ve enjoyed your beginnings and endings. The photo of the footsteps entering a pristine landscape is wonderful. It’s snowing hard here.

    1. Thanks Barb–we got a series of three “snow events”–each a little more than the last. Last night we got about 9-10.” I think we need it for the reservoirs. Spring will officially arrive in late March, however April and early May are fickle and often cold. June and October are the two best months of the year for me weather and otherwise. Happy Spring and gardening. Thanks again for your lovely comments and support.
