Change Is Afoot

Post date: Nov 09, 2020 6:2:35 AM

In this week of political change, I offer some not-so-political changes for Graceguts. On my “How to Respond to a Haiku” poem, available through the Poems and Poems About Haiku pages, I’ve added photos of the Ars Poetica at BARN catalog from a recent gallery exhibit at which this poem was featured with a fiber art interpretation, and have also added artist statements that were shared at the exhibit opening. On the Rengay page, look for “Come One, Come All,” written with Margaret Rutley and Sidney Bending (we’ve been having fun with several rengay lately—and this one is about the circus). On the Haiga page, look for “First Snow,” with a dozen photo-haiga made for a set of poems from a trifold by the same title (with Japanese translations). And on the Commentary page, please find “Magnetic Paper Clips,” a short and sweet assessment of one of my tanka from a contest. Here’s to these and other changes!
