Full moon madness . . .

lenten moon–
enough tsunamis
to last a lifetime

According to astronomers, this month’s full moon–the Lenten Moon–will be closer to the earth than any other moon this year and will, therefore, appear to shine brighter.  On the negative side, tidal waves, say scientists, may be even more prevalent and violent than usual.  Let’s hope not.   The recent earthquake in Japan and resulting tsunamis have wreaked enough havoc, devastation and loss of life.

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
