Published Haiku!

In a previous post, I mentioned one of my haiku would appear in the August edition of the journal, Better than Starbucks. Well, August is here, and my haiku has been published 😊. To date, this is my third published poem.

If you’d like to check out my haiku online, you can read it here. However, the link takes you to the haiku page, not my haiku, so you’ll have to find mine on the page. Given that, I’m going to post it below so people don’t have to hunt for it. But if you have the time, there are other fine haiku you can read along with mine.

If you are like me and still like printed books, you can purchase a print copy of the August issue of Better than Starbucks here.

Better than Starbucks publishes haiku without titles, which I believe is often the tradition. When this haiku appears in my third book (released sometime next year, I hope), it will have the title “Year’s End.” Thank you for celebrating this with me!

The pond is seized by
icy rigor, dead to wind,
and bereft of swans.
