Dancing In The Spirit

April 27, 2015

As I rest in your embrace

your immeasurable outpouring of love

makes my spirit dance and sing

as I bask in your glory.


there is nothing we can’t do.

I am yours.

No Turning Back

April 27, 2015

As I wandered along the path of good enough

I told myself it was okay.

Then, I met you and wondered . . .

and when I felt your love

I questioned all I ever knew

and realized

I was simply not made to settle for okay.

I was made for so much more!

Like quicksand

I’m being swallowed up.

Deeper and deeper I’m falling

and I’m not turning back . . .

no, there’s no WAY I’m turning back.

The clouds break apart

dampened grass between my toes

Ah, new beginnings

Haiku Education Note

April 24, 2015

Originally posted on Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin:

The Survey Says question this week at The Haiku Foundation asks for feedback about our Education Page.  On their home page, clicking on HAIKU LESSONS transfers readers to this education work, which in turn links to haiku lessons and many other resources.

Also this week, Kala Ramesh, who has been teaching haiku in India for several years, helped us begin a new area: StoriesFrom The Field.  We saw Kala’s work as Youth Corner Editor for cattails, the online journal for the United Haiku and Tanka Society.  We thought teachers and others who visit THF Education Page would appreciate knowing about this resource as well.

The education work has grown steadily, as Jim Kacian notes in the survey question.  The excellent work of many poets and teachers is there, and organized well.  Dave Russo at THF is the web administrator.

Thank you, Ellen
