Stars, planets, moons . . .

My friend, esteemed poet Van K. Brock, sent me a string of powerful haiku (see Comments), starting with this apology:

Margaret, sorry:
all else should be more lovely,
with stars, planets, moons.

And so I feel compelled, in exquisite corpse fashion, to reply:

stars, planets, moons–
so many old friends I see

circling my night sky

Care to keep the exquisite corpse circling?  I’ll post responses (as well as including them in the comment section) soon . . .

About Margaret Dornaus

I’m a writer and a teacher, as well as a haiku-doodler. I live in a beautiful woodland setting, surrounded by native oak forests, that inspires me to record haiku snapshots of luna moths and our resident roadrunner, and even an occasional black bear as it hightails it across the top of my road, my mongrel dog barking at its heels as I watch with wonder. My work as a travel writer has appeared in publications from The Dallas Morning News to the Robb Report. You can find examples of my travel writing–as well as excerpts from a travel memoir I’m working on–at my other WordPress site, Travelin’ On. What more than that do you need to know? Only that I started this blog with an eye toward collaboration. Got a haiku? Send it my way. . . . I’m all about new visions & voices. Best, Margaret

    Circling my night sky
    are bats and nighthawks snatching
    winged insects in flight.
