I lie awake listening
for the sound
of your footsteps, your breath . . .
the heavy stillness of life

Fire Pearls 2: Short Masterpieces of Love and Passion


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

    I remember this one. It’s very interesting – can be read in different ways. I like how L1 and 5 work with each other.

    I must be wild, because I have “textured” bangs (and have had them for years). 🙂

    • Thank you, Janet. Coyotes are a presence in my (fall/winter) life here in the woods . . . and I have a fondness for the word “still” in all its forms.

      Textured bangs . . . hmmm . . . something to add to the list!
