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.

small study
and books to read
days with longer light

silence

silence
on an early Saturday
morning in October
a few gold leaves
fall to the garden

moving my recliner
closer to new sun

today I have
an appointment
with the light and books
in my small study
