rainy day
at the table behind me
talk turns to money

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

    Doesn’t it always, eventually?
    I really like your down-to-earth style of haiku – your true observations of life.

    Oh no, life is the best thing to write from.

    In memory of my parents who both died in autumn.

    chill autumn winds
    blowing in memories
    of loved ones gone

    I wear his sweater
    to take away the chill
    of his absence

    simmering pot roast
    I taste her touch
    in the gravy

    These were just written without thinking about them. Maybe that’s the best way.
