It is always exciting to receive news of published pieces.  The Gean Tree Press has published, in their June 2009 edition, 2 haiku, 3 tanka, 3 haiga of mine.  I have uploaded half of them to the blumoon site.  (Will upload the other half tomorrow).

Please do visit Gean Tree Press  and read all the wonderful poets featured in this, the first issue. – the link will also be up in my blogroll at my poetry site.

i am travelling to Bali in a couple of weeks and i am thinking of doing another ‘foundart series’ …. see the first one here .  And with that in mind, i have been playing these past couple of weeks …

looking forward to seeing where these end up (as art and in places) ! ….  >>> Gina

small matters

haiku seems to be experiencing a surge throughout the world … nice

its true you know

small matters do matter
and its no small matter

currently exploring haiga – haiku with visual … and this is my first at taiga (tanka with visual) …. it is my 10th haiku/visual exploration … the tanka grew out of the image and the image grew too, being a stitched landscape …

let me know what you think …
