spring buds . . .

spring buds on a star magnolia

another blush
at the sound of his name . . .
autumn leaves

city lights homesick for the stars

A Hundred Gourds, vol 1., no. 2, March 2012

The second issue of the new journal A Hundred Gourds, under the able direction of Lorin Ford, is up and running now . . . and I’m pleased to be a part of it.  This issue is full of wonderful poetry from a fine collection of poets and haiga artists, and the newly revamped indexing feature allows readers to search each section by the poet’s name.

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

  1. I really like ‘another blush’, especially as we are heading into autumn here in New Zealand. I must check out this journal: I’ve never submitted or taken a look. Will put it on my ‘to do’ list! KC x

    • Thanks, Kirsten. Yes, you should check out AHG! Lorin Ford is a wonderful Australian haijin!

      By the way, I went to your site to leave a comment, but for some reason I got knocked off. Just wanted to tell you how much I not only like your new picture but also the haiku which contains “swimming in haiku” . . . wonderful to have the whole context!

  2. Images!
