reading poetry

reading poetry
and watching the sky
tomorrow is March

and we will remember
this February
for a long time

the harsh weather
and difficult days
in different ways

yet also the great blessings
the pipes that did not freeze
shelter, warmth, internet

sunrises and sunsets
longer days
another sunrise

the beauty of this day

Today I am reading and rereading poems from The Book of Kells (2019, Cascade Books) by Barbara Crooker. Please visit her books page for more information.

I also plan to spend more time with Modern Haiku, An Independent Journal of Haiku and Haiku Studies (Volume 50.1, Winter – Spring 2019). Paul Miller is Editor, since 2013.
