the time it takes to look

Frogpond 36:2, Spring/Summer 2013

The new issue of the Haiku Society of America’s journal Frogpond arrived at my doorstep today, and, with it, a wonderful variety of haiku and essays I can’t wait to read more thoroughly. I’m happy to have two haiku included within its pages, and the one above seems particularly appropriate for me to share after having successfully crested another birthday . . . .

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
