50th Anniversary – Haiku Society of America

2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the Haiku Society of America! I am honored to have a senryu in this year’s members’ anthology celebrating this occasion. The collection is titled Four Hundred and Two Snails. More information about the HSA can be found here

New Beginning


A waitress with bright red lips passes by our table. My daughter stares as she walks away and asks why her lips are red. My husband explains that just like how we paint our nails you can paint your lips too. Having not worn makeup in over a decade I wonder what other questions my daughter will have.
