Welcome, Multiverses . . .


life lessons . . .
mother tells me not to air
family secrets:
sticks and stones and stories
parched as a prairie graveyard

Multiverses, vol. 1, no. 1, June 2012

I’m pleased to have several tanka included in the inaugural issue of a new online journal called Multiverses, where the wonderful poet Paul Smith is serving as tanka editor. It is always a happy day when another journal featuring short-form poetry appears on the scene.  Welcome, Multiverses!  We’ve been waiting for you!

he worries
about the way I walk
I think this is what it’s like
to grow old in a hurry

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
