Haiku and Hiatus


Hey all, today I have two topics to post about. The first regards Stephanie Thorton’s haiku contest, which requires participants to post their haikus on their blogs. Secondly, I will be taking a little break from blogging for the next week or two, I’ll explain later. But fear not! I’ll be very much ready to roll with upcoming events on my blog, such as my continued saga with trying to get literary agents to say “yes” to my novel as well as other writing and book related themes.

So have a good weekend and tune back in to my blog in another week or two. In the meantime, here are two of my haikus for the contest. I’m not big on following rules to the letter, but these poems are haiku enough for me. Tread lightly, I’m much more novelist now rather than poet, but it’s been fun trying nonetheless.

Autumnal woodlands
Champagne tree tops and wine stains
Upon the bone moon 

Sunshine on a pond
Like tree rings, wet reflections
Drift over the water
