so many empty chairs

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

    Again, such a lovely haiku, hermana! So poignant with the moon softening unexpressed grief and layered with intimate memories. It could not but be accepted for an inaugural issue…congrats!!!

    • Thank you, again, hermana. I so appreciate your comments and your friendship . . . I’m hoping to travel to Vancouver in the spring, for the Cherry Blossom Festival. Would be so lovely if, finally, we meet face-to-face!
