Tanka Café Winter 2018 ~ weather prompt
I was born
in a winter storm,
a tiny soul
in a sea of white
This haiku is my first poem in the journal, Modern Haiku.
Using a photo I took and two different art programs on my iPad, a new picture appeared that was perfect for this senryu.
This haiga was published in:
Failed Haiku, A Journal of English Senryu, Issue 16, April 2017
A new haiku published in Wild Plum, a haiku journal, 2:2 Fall & Winter 2016:
This haiku has just appeared in The Heron’s Nest, a distinguished journal of haiku. For me, as a first time poet in this journal, it is a truly great honor for which I’m thankful.
My poem is on page 11 of The Heron’s Nest: http://www.theheronsnest.com/March2016/haiku-p11.html

This tanka art piece is the second in my Dream Time series of poems. To read the first poem in the series (on this blog), follow this link:
As you’ll notice the two poems are quite different in style and content, but I’ve grouped them together in Dream Time since both were written while poised on that slender edge of dreaming into another time and place.
A Special Word of Thanks:
A big thank you to my dear husband, Ritchie D. Kendall, who took this photograph on a hill in Greenwich in 2013 when we were living in London.
