For my review, I thought “another summer” would follow the previous two poems I posted well: paintings of trees and spruce tree branches.

I also want to mention my Poet Profile at The Haiku Foundation Haiku Registry. I served as a volunteer in Education.

Thank you

2022 Review – I am memorizing the sequence of poems as I create these posts. Perhaps for a chapbook in the next year or two. How do poems from over the years work together? I also hope to remember the journals and editors. And a cover art photo by Karl . . .
