Holiday Haiku!

Christmas lights twinkle.

The Skater’s Waltz. A Swan Dive.

Snow softly falling.


Christmas Eve, midnight.

The choir singing far above.

Soon, gifts and giggles!


A new year begins.

Fresh palette, possibilities.

Raise a glass of cheer!

Winter Sneak Peek from Haiku Reflections II




Feeling your presence.

Velvet rose, good-time clothes.

Winter memories.


Saturday morning.

Croissants and coffee in bed.

Plum jam, with kisses!


Mittens on a string.

Bundling up the little ones.

First day at the rink.

I’m so happy to have this latest book completed and happy how it turned out too.

Even have my first review over at Amazon already, woohoo…thanks L! 🙂 

I’ve shared a sneak peek from the Winter section of the book, above.

Winter can be a tough time for all of us. But I hope that these poems bring to mind, some of the magic of this upcoming season.


Happy Weekend (and Black Friday Shopping!) to All. 🙂

I am working on the second volume of Haiku Reflections right now. 

I like the cover color (spring green) but I can’t decide on which photo to use.

Your opinion would be most appreciated. Which one do you like best?

Please disregard text color and cropping.

This is from a screenshot I took off CreateSpace and cropped with MS Paint, so not exactly as it will look in the end.

Thanks so much! 🙂


Getting Over the “Snuffles” and an Upcoming Free Promo

I rarely get sick but I’m just getting over a cold right now. 😦

I don’t “do sick” well or often and I’m getting fed up with sitting around on the couch reading or napping, when I’ve got a pile of work I should be doing instead. Oh well, this too shall pass.

On a happier note, I have another free Kindle ebook promo coming up this Friday and Saturday (15th- 16th) for:

Haiku Reflections: The Four Seasons

I’ve been happy to note that Haiku Reflections continues to be on the Top 100 Paid Best Sellers: Poetry: Japanese and Haiku, over at Amazon. 😉

I also recently completed all the haiku poems for my new poetry book/ebook, that will be published shortly:

Haiku Reflections II: The Four Seasons

 As soon as I’m feeling better, I’ll be getting that project completed. 🙂

Hope you are having a good and “snuffle-free” week.

But judging by what I was reading on the WP Reader yesterday, there are a lot of bloggers “under the weather” right now.


Haiku Reflections featured at: Chick With A Quill!

What a lovely surprise as I was starting my morning, browsing through the latest posts via Google Reader when I noted this one over at my blog pal Vesper’s online place: Chick With A Quill.

Thanks so much Vesper!

I’m honored to be featured at your great blog and touched by your kind and thoughtful words.

Isn’t it nice when people support and encourage our creative work? I’ve been lucky in that respect, again and again. And I try to return the positive and nurturing energy whenever I can. That makes my day too!

Happy Weekend! G 🙂
