Here are several of my contributions in Brass Bell:
Brass BellOctober 2022 / Theme: kitchen haiku
teatime just water and leaves you and me
Brass Bell September 2022 / Theme: homeplace
buffalo, new york we all laugh & tumble off the long toboggan again
Brass Bell August 2022 / Theme: water
icy rain— somehow this ache just won’t leave
washed up without a song moon shell
Brass Bell July 2022 / Theme: sound
lyrics long forgotten the melody always in my mind

Like so many other people, the year and a half pandemic has thrown my sense of time way off. I’m so far behind in posting newly published poems on this blog that I find myself now playing catch up. I am both honored and happy to have had such fine journals select some of my work to publish in 2021.
both of us relieved we made it to this side of the pandemic – falling back in love with spring’s soft greening
A haiku or a senryu? I love this poem very much, and I’m so grateful to Caroline Skanne, the editor of Blithe Spirit, for choosing it for publication.
I have always been fascinated with seeing a “day moon.” I’ve always considered it a sign or good luck or something fortunate happening or about to happen. Do you have any thoughts about seeing the moon out during the daylight hours? Is it magical to you? It is for me.
