a band of stars . . .

Rick Daddario’s September 14 “30 Days of Haiga”  prompt, “a band of stars,” inspired me to create a haiga from a picture I took of the winter wonderland display of lights at Garvan Gardens in Hot Springs, AR.

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

  3. aloha Margaret – wow. that looks like an awesome path to wander down and on toward home. with or without stars. oh, heck. yeah, in the moon and starlight too.

    those look like ponderosa pine. i could be wrong on that. but that’s what most of them look like to me. i miss this kind of forest a lot sometimes.

    yeah, i could wander down this path of stars with your haiga for a while now. it very much takes me back home (my growing-up homes – among others – of both Arizona and Washington state along the Idaho and Oregon border). twilight and stars – a beautiful path home. i like that. and i like this. cool. aloha

    Didn’t comment before when I visited, but now that my band is done, I just wanted to tell you how much I love your image and writing on this prompt. It is so inviting and peaceful. Counting blessings along with stars. Thank you so much for sharing this.
