Just this


I would wear the sky,
*
pull that cloak of peacock feathers
*
together and fly

That is simply stunning--can only imagine how it felt to view that first hand, and your haiku fits perfectly

I LOVE both of these: your photo and your poem. On days when I feel trapped and overwhelmed, I'm going to imagine wearing the sky and then flying away.

Lovely image and words.

I too am avoiding the Mockingjay reviews as I don’t have the book yet. For some reason our local independent bookstore hasn’t gotten it in yet. Congratulations on you pitch honorable mention!

Your haikus never cease to amaze me, Tricia. I hope you join my Haiku Blogfest this weekend- the poems you post here are truly gorgeous. I always know I'm in for a treat when I click on your blog!

Truly ravishing, Tricia. I hope you participate in the haiku blogfest this weekend. Your words [and photos] always inspire.

EVERYBODY! Thank you so much for all these wonderful comments. This has been a strange, difficult week for me, so I'm sorry I didn't reply to each of you, but I am so touched. Really and truly.
