Creative Reading Note: Gary Hotham

I am reading Park Bench Memories: Haiku Tailwinds, by Gary Hotham. As stated in the book, he has been writing haiku since 1966. The haiku in this book were previously published in the last ten years, in many publications. Gary Hotham states, “Making moments wear words.” Wonderful book.

Time of Singing poetry journal

Time of Singing poetry journal, edited by Lora Zill, has a new site. This print journal was one of the first to publish my poems, and I am grateful. Today I am reading the Winter 2020/21 issue (Volume 47, Number 3).

Here is an early poem.

birds perch
in sheltering branches
a grain of mustard seed

Matthew 13: 31–32 inspired my poem.
Published by Time of Singing (1995).
