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

  2. Beautiful haiku, Margaret, and haiga by Ron Moss. I love your image of the deadwood having its place in nature, still giving life.

    It must have been a wonderful feeling working with Ron. He’s such a master with the brush. Gorgeous. Congratulations!

    • Thank you, Merrill. I’m a great admirer of Ron’s work–all ’round. What a great photographer as well as writer and painter. I was completely surprised that he chose my haiku, and I didn’t realize it until I saw the journal! Love it! P.S. Merrill, I’m a great admirer of your work as well!
