My haiku was published at Poems From Psalms And Nature on May 16, 2012. Reprinted in the book, The Helping Hand Haiku Anthology (Including Senryu, Tanka, and Haiga). Edited by Robert Epstein (2020, Middle Island Press). Karl and I also reprinted the poem in Quiet Christmas Poetry (2014). I am reading from the anthology today.
Yesterday, I posted November Wisconsin Countryside, that was published by SMILE (out of print). Today I searched for other poems that appeared in this journal, created by Joyce M. Johnson. I appreciate how I can SEARCH the blog for posts that relate to a theme. Could be a season, garden journal, my study window; and in this post, SMILE and a few other publications.
