change of seasons
I catch myself talking

The Heron’s Nest, vol. XIII, no. 4, December 2011

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

    I’ve just been going over the haiku from Frogpond…I love to explore them at the end of the year but I’m not sure I’d like to vote for ten favorites… But I did love this one when I came to it.

    • Thank you, Merrill! I haven’t published in Frogpond; this one is from The Heron’s Nest, but I’m glad you liked it!

      I’m a big fan of your work–both written and visual.

      Best, Margaret

    Hi, Margaret, I was thinking Heron’s Nest and my fingers typed Frogpond… So much going on and I’ve been squeezing it into the spare moments. Your haiku touched something that often happens to all of us poets, I think. Have a wonderful holiday. Merrill

    • Thank you so much, Merrill. I’m touched that you were affected by my haiku . . . Best of holidays to you, as well. And a wonderful new year full of love and creativity and laughter! Maggie
