Words in Bloom

In the spring of 2021, one of my haiku was included in the Chicago Botanic Garden’s “Words in Bloom” exhibit, with numerous poems displayed around the garden. My poem appeared in the English Walled Garden and Rose Garden area. For this installation, nine new poems were installed for each of the four seasons in 2021. Thank you to Julie Schwerin for curating this installation. And thanks to Julie and Tia Haynes for the photos.
