Dear Readers,

I am pleased to tell you that I have just published my 3rd book, ABC to Enlightenment. It's not a book of poems but weekly words of advice sent to my children and grandchildren through the magic of email. I wrote them for consecutive 26 weeks, January to July 2011 starting with letter A for Action, B for Beauty, C for Courage to the last letter Z for Zeal.

summer advent
she watches the hummingbirds
with unopened book

With the warm weather fast approaching, smile, no laugh once in a while!

uncontrolled laughter
grandpa's denture falls
in his bowl of soup

Just discovered a review of my book, Haiku and Tanka Harvest, in Lynx, a Journal for Linking Poets in its June 2012 issue. Here's the link:

the flower’s essence
lingers long after
its bloom wilts
remembering the lives
she touched on earth
