Three poems (two haiku and one tanka) were published in the winter issue of Kokako, 2021. I have a real fondness for this journal because I love all things Kiwi. New Zealand is a beautiful country with such great people. They have a very active poetry community, and Kokako is a beautiful journal to be part of.
snow drifts ~
the wild wind’s
last brief fling
now grow pale
in an old milk jug,
this pandemic silence
urges me to notice
the simplest things

a crackle of fire
in our stories
a wooden cross
. . . winter light
