how to begin
reinventing my story

So pleased to have my work included in Marilyn Hazelton’s wonderful tanka journal, red lights. The biannual journal, full of a great variety of tanka from many diverse voices, is published each June and January.
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.
Gosh, I love this tanka, Margaret! So very, very beautiful! Thank you for sharing it here. 🙂
I hope you’ll submit an entry into the tanka competition that I’m having over on my blog – http://kirstencliffwrites.blogspot.co.nz/2012/07/siloh-tanka-contest-is-open.html
Thank you, Kirsten. So great to hear your voice . . . and serendipitous, as I was just thinking about what I might send your way! Thanks for the nudge. I have to get with my own birthday giveaway ideas!
I get your posts sent straight to my email inbox and the above tanka is one that won’t be getting deleted. I’m captured!
So sweet . . . Thank you.
Excellent, thank you!
Thank you, Ellen!
