2022 Published Poems


Note to my dear readers: I’m way, way, way behind posting 2022 published poems. They all appear on the main page of my blog, but I need to reevaluate the need/purpose of also doing them by year. My apologies for this lapse. I’ll fix it before 2023!!


This part of my blog includes poems and places in which my work has been published in 2022. To make this readable, the newest poems are at the TOP of this page. Thank you for visiting and reading my work.

It has been a great delight for haiku/senryu writers to see that editor, Irene (Zee) Zahava began again to published the wonderful journal, Brass Bell in 2022. It’s an online journal published monthly and always with a specific theme. Poets are invited to submit–an honor indeed. Here are some I’ve done this year so far:

Brass Bell March 2022, Theme: Things That Make Us Happy 



a bit unkempt
this cottage garden,
my inner life


Brass Bell February 2022, Theme: One line haiku

cars awash
with cherry blossoms . . .
