dark of the moon . . .

dark of the moon . . .
she resolves to take a walk
on the wild side

Today marks not just the first day of a new year but also a new “super” moon (the first of two this month) that has the distinction of revealing the moon’s “dark side.” With that in mind, I’ve resolved to let my wild side loose a little more often than I did in 2013. I think that’s a good thing, and I’m looking forward to where it might take me in the year ahead.

Happy New Year 2014! May it be filled with hope and joy . . . and more than a little wildness!

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

    Lovely haiku – love the wild side! I think it was really neat that the first day of the year was a new moon, so fitting.
    Here’s for a creative and joyful new year!
