Published Again!

I am happy to say that another of my poems will appear in the journal Better than Starbucks this August! The past couple months, I found myself writing a number of haiku and tanka, poetic forms that originated in Japan. Better than Starbucks has a section of their journal dedicated to haiku, so I decided to send in a few. After its publication in August, I’ll post a link so readers can check it out as well. For now, I just wanted to share the good news 😊

While visiting my mom a number of years ago, I learned of a haiku contest a local zoo was running to honor endangered frog species. This provoked my mischievous side, and I sent in the haiku below. I didn’t win. I didn’t even hear back. But it made me laugh 😆

Out of the Frying Pan…?

Frogs’ legs can be fried,
but you have to catch them first:
catapults of green.
