one to grow on . . .

one to grow on
in the center of the cake . . .
an extra candle
to light my path forward
to lead me home again

red lights, vol. 8, no. 1, January 2012

I am so happy to be included in Marilyn Hazelton’s current issue of red lights alongside so many wonderful tanka poets.  If you don’t already know about this biannual gem of a journal, you can click on the link for more information.  What a pleasure!


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

    Margaret, I just got my copy too. It is such a marvelous issue. At this time of year I think we are all looking for the light to follow in the changes that will come with the New Year. I hope all your changes will be happy ones. Happy New Year! Merrill

    • Thank you, Merrill. You are so kind. I’ve been reading red lights all evening and enjoying the many lights I find there. Your beautiful tan-ga/tai-ga . . . I love what you do with pen and ink and words! Happy New Year to you as well!
