"Bad News" is Happy News

Back in March, I mentioned that a poem of mine was accepted for an anthology of hay(na)ku. "Bad News" is the poem. Now that the anthology is released, I am sharing the poem with you. 

Hay(na)ku poems are composed of six words in three lines. What cracks me up is that my brief bio in the book is 10 times longer.

Over 100 poets from around the world are featured in HAY(NA)KU 15:A Commemorative 15th Year Anniversary Anthology. Published by Paloma Press, it's edited by Eileen R. Tabios, the creator of the hay(na)ku form.

    1. Definitely. The book came in the mail yesterday. I discovered a hay(na)ku doesn't have to be just one stanza. So, today, I wrote a poem about the thug of an oaf in office.

  6. High-riding anxiety! . . . love it . . . bravo. :)

  7. you are such a clever girl! Congratulations. And it speaks to me.
