mummy painting the young girl’s eyes wide open
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.
