What was your dream job as a child?
Bloganuary Prompt for January 22, 2023
My parents were teachers, and I enjoyed school and libraries. And art projects.
Since I began with blogs, I served as a volunteer in education at The Haiku Foundation and helped begin their Education Resources about ten years ago. Many teachers, poets, and scholars contribute their work. I am honored that one of my haiku was published in their first volunteer anthology. Here is my poem and the credits.

How do you define success?
December 19, 2022 – 13 years since we began Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin. Blogs are a wonderful way to learn and create. I am growing older here, and grateful every day.
And Bloganuary again this year.
cooler weather and strong winds
all the leaves falling and we see the shapes of trees
light streams into the house as the sun moves south
red geraniums still bloom
October turns to face November
October 2011, 2021
And this is another idea for the poem from October 2012:
strong cold winds
into the house
as sun moves south
to face November
paintings of trees
on old pine walls
