Dormant seed

a sliver of light
slices through
the icy landscape
beneath the snow
a dormant seed awaits

I dread
the dark demons
that chase my dream
your touch is so real
am I in love again

New Year resolutions

new year's wishes
tossed in the wind
old calendar leaves

2010, a good year

I was blessed last year when several of my poems were published in World Haiku Review, The Hornet's Nest, Notes from the Gean, Sketchbook, and Mainichi Daily News in Japan. The highlights of the year were the publication of my haiku in the 2nd Annual Basho Haiku Challenge Chapbook, one of 56 from nearly 500 world-wide submissions and the inclusion of my works in a multicultural book anthology from Romania! My goal this year is the publication of my second book of poems.
