how to express . . .


During a season of hope and prayer, how do any of us make sense of the violence that often overshadows our world? I’m not sure, except to keep looking for answers . . .ron moss haiga

(Thank you to Ron Moss for selecting my tanka to feature in this lovely haiga created for A Hundred Gourds.)

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

    the same rosey dawn
    today we begin
    to bury the dead
