CREATIVE NOTE: I am honored and grateful that two of my haiku appear in the new WestWard Quarterly, The Magazine of Family Reading. The magazine is published from Hamilton, Illinois, USA. Their readers and poets are international. My name there is written as Dr. Ellen G. Olinger. In 1987, I earned the Doctor of Education degree from Northern Illinois University. Thank you.
The Haiku Foundation has a new site design.
New to Haiku: How to Connect With Other Poets on The Haiku Foundation Website is a new post by Julie Bloss Kelsey, who is the Secretary of The Haiku Foundation.
beauty of trees
shaped by the wind
has passed since
my mother’s passing
I sit and quietly read
a book she would like too
sun reaches the painting
adds another layer
The painting in my study is by Wendy Brightbill – artist * designer * teacher.
