winter solstice
nothing left to talk about
outside the weather

A Hundred Gourds, vol. 1, no. 3, June 2012

(Out of sync with the climate in my hemisphere, I know, but I’m hoping this makes the 100-degree-plus temperatures we’ve been enduring here for weeks on end more bearable . . . . I might have to post more winter ku in the near future just to trick myself into believing in snow again.)


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

    How about an autumn walk? Brisk with ruddy color crisp beneath your feet. 😀

    And lately the weather seems to be intruding into everything we do too!

    ah, the thought of snow is refreshing! but, I hear crows again this morning — that signals a near-end to this heat. (they’re smart, those birds. they don’t hang around for ridiculous weather!) 😉

    • Thanks, Angie, I’ll have to pay more attention to the crows . . . I keep thinking there might be a turn come mid-August (as July is usually the worst of the worst). Still, the forecast for tomorrow is slated for 108 . . . oh, for a balmy ocean breeze!
