long night moon
he traces figure eights
on my shoulders
the sorrows of yesterday
. . . light as a swan’s feather

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. …how you “touch” words, enables all of us to feel your “touch”…I am constantly amazed by your skill of crafting words to create visuals we can truly see, and often feel…

    Maggie, like the tanka and a lot of your recent postings. You seem to be more in the current day — the ups and down of life, the quirks and foibles of daily living. Have a merry Christmas and a good New Year.
