I am delighted to share two of my haikus, Dancing and Autumn Morning, are published at Whispers and Echoes Magazine!
Dedicated to short and crisp writing, I am proud to have my writing included in this online journal collective. I am a lover of small thoughts and the little things and those feelings in words are the poems Whispers and Echoes seeks to share.
I am slow to embrace the feel of the new season, but I have come to enjoy fall. I have come to love the slow transition from summer into the next season as yellow and green leaves hang side by side on the trees and foliage begins to clog the creek that runs behind my home.
Where I live in the Blue Ridge Mountains, fall is what people come to see in my mountains. If I walk out my back door and walk through the woods, I come out on the Blue Ridge Parkway where the cars drive from overlook to overlook for splash of memory-worthy beauty.
The seasons influence my writing, yet I find myself writing of spring in fall, dreaming of summer in winter, wanting to put to words the sparkle of morning sun on snow in spring.
What I experience daily and what I remember goes into my writing. What I have and what I long for goes into my writing, which is why I write about not only the things I know but also the things I do not know and learn in doing so. Whether it be for your eyes or the world, try writing out of your comfort zone once in a while.
Dancing and Autumn Morning are safe poems since they are poems directly inspired by where I live, but also poems that contain my feeling of home. Please enjoy my dedication to fall and imagine autumn in the Blue Ridge.
