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

  1. My Mom’s dog slept at the feet of my Dad as he sat with Mom. For those who have not been there, from someone who saw it, I can tell you it is its own kind of beauty. So when I say lovely Haiku you will know where I am coming from. Lovely Haiku.

    • Thank you, Jagged Man, for stopping by and taking the time to comment. Yes, dogs do have an amazing capacity to “be there” for their owners. I too have experienced this. Best to you, Margaret
