Yes, this is basically a haiku blog. But because I am actually a very wordy person and not satisfied to stop at tiny little poems, you will also find here extraneous rambling meditations on the haiku form, other Japanese poetic forms, poetry in general, writing in general, and other random stuff that I just felt like writing about. Also, pointless anecdotes about what is going on in my life. Feel free to ignore whatever you want.
Oh, about me? I live in the upper Midwest of the United States (but I came from the East and still miss the mountains and the ocean). I’m a reader, a writer, a student, a mother, and now, to my great shock, a poet. I never thought that would happen. But I am beginning to realize how very unpredictable life is.
If you want, go ahead and drop me a line and tell me what’s what. I learn from my readers all the time. That’s the best part of having a blog, it keeps you from thinking you know everything.
Thanks for stopping by. Wish I could offer you some tea and cake.
