the zen space

autumn-redI am pleased to announce that the Autumn 2013 Showcase is now published, with a sudden red theme to the haiga and illustrations. To visit, hover your cursor over the ‘Experience’ tab and look for the link. Alternatively, click here.

While I have your attention, how would you like a free e-book? P’kaboo Publishers are giving away 100 copies of four of their most popular titles – novels for readers of all ages. There’s no catch, but readers are invited to take part in Round 2 of the publisher’s ‘Facebook Share Contest’ – all a reader has to do is write a review of the book(s) of their choice; the name of every reviewer will be put into a draw for a free printed copy autographed by the author – I believe there are three of each books available. You can check it out for now at Lyz Russo’s blog

Autumn 2013 Showcase now published.

questions and zen



two wonderful publications have gone live recently and due to the kindness of some very lovely editors,
a few of my poems have been included. it is time (past due) for thanks!
first, a ‘thank you’ to  marie marshall  for including me in  the autumn 2012 showcase  on  the zen space.   do stop by for a leisurely stroll … then on your way home, drop into   amazon   and order marie’s  new novel Lupa!   everyone needs her own copy.     congratulations, marie!!
and a ‘thank you’ to dale wisely for including   my poem   in   questions,  the new mini-issue at   right hand pointing.   I’m so happy to be able to share that space with fellow poet-friend   deb scott   and other awesome writers. it’s a great read; don’t miss it!


joyful moon –
I sing with the voice
of a crow

airbursts, shattercones and the space for zen


I’m happy (and a few other words, too) to announce that today marks the publication of my poetry in two different places. a great, heart-felt ‘thank you’ to marie marshall for including me once again in her wonderful ‘the zen space’ — in the Summer 2012 Showcase. come help celebrate Matsuo Bashō’s famous haiku; you may just notice some familiar ‘feathered’ friends during your wandering.

I’m startled by the splash
of frogs
