Garden Tea Party by Charles A. Waugaman

GARDEN TEA PARTY

Listen to the leaves
of robin song
spill into the rain:

parched dreams expanding
and staining the
long afternoon with

poignant fragrances:
blending past and
hope with vibrant joy.

Honeysuckle by Lake Michigan, 2018

Haiku Art Site 2012 - 2018

We are working on a second large print chapbook, in the same style as Quiet Christmas Poetry.  The theme is Wisconsin Seasons and Encouragement.

roses in the sun
some ending
some beginning
and some in full bloom
good to grow older

Lake Michigan

weeping willows
reach towards ground
humility

small waves to shore
one song after another
fades to silence

how does it stay
so regal on this day?
Queen Anne’s Lace

lake and sky
the same color
Autumn Equinox

highway sounds
in the distance
years gone by

Sharing Haiku Lesson 2 – The Haiku Foundation Digital Library

Haiku Art Site 2012 - 2018

Jim Kacian and I completed a new lesson plan:

Sharing Haiku Lesson 2 – The Haiku Foundation Digital Library.

I will keep this post short, and hope you can look at the plan if you are interested.  It lists the 7 collections in THF Digital Library, and the lesson features a book by Ion Codrescu.  Garry Eaton is the volunteer librarian.

The Haiku Foundation is non-profit.

Thank you

Ellen Grace Olinger
