forced paperwhites
on a sill in my kitchen
this winter
I find myself searching
more closely for miracles

Moonbathing, Issue 7, Autumn/Winter 2012-2013

I just received the newest copy of Pamela A. Babusci’s Moonbathing: A Journal of Women’s Tanka.  Thank you, Pamela, for including my work alongside so many lovely tanka.


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
