More All Souls Tributes . . .

My friend, the talented tanka poet Janet L. Davis has contributed the following two beautiful poems to my All Souls Tribute posts. Thank you, Janet.

a cutting chill
till the last rose is placed …
through the ether
he breathes words into me
for his death poem

     —Ribbons (Tanka Cafe, “The Afterlife”), Spring 2013

my baby sister,
in this light older than I?
how swiftly
the creases deepen
with the death of a child

—Ribbons, Winter 2007


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
