A Hundred Gourds, vol. 1, no. 4, Sept. 2012

It’s already the middle of October, and that has me thinking about the dead . . . And, more specifically, Day of the Dead.   For the past two years, I’ve asked readers to contribute small poems–haiku, tanka, haiga–to celebrate the memory of loved ones they’ve lost but still cherish.  You can join me, again, for my annual Día de los Muertos  post by e-mailing your entry to me here as a comment by October 26 in time for my Halloween posting.


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
