I want to once again thank Freya Pickard for featuring one of my haiku as part of the Portal Series on Pure Haiku. You can read it here.
I will be taking a few weeks off from posting to deal with ongoing family medical issues, but I will try to check in with WordPress every once in awhile to see what’s going on. And Nina will still be posting her work every few days, so we won’t be totally absent.
My haiku “Shapeshifting Moonlight” is posted today as part of Pure Haiku’s Portal Series. You can read it here, along with all the other wonderful portals in verse. Thanks as always to Freya Pickard for including my words on Pure Haiku.

Remembering those who lost their lives in the Tree of Life Synagogue on Saturday. May they rest always in a portal of light.
I was honored when Freya at Pure Haiku chose me to be the featured writer for the Celestial Bodies theme. It turned out to be a double blessing, as it gave me something tangible to do creatively when a member of my family became ill. He is doing well, but I’m sure most people know the drill with cancer–surgery, and then weeks of radiation and chemo, to be followed by testing and more interventions as needed.
I want to thank everyone for their good wishes, and will try to visit your blogs when I can. Nina and I both hope to be more present in the coming months.
You can find the haiku to go with the illustration above here. Thanks again Freya!
