The Fox Poetry Box

Wouldn’t the world be a better place with a poetry box on every street? Many thanks to poet Tricia Marcella Cimera Whitworth for featuring my haiku in The Fox Poetry Box (so named because she lives in the Fox Valley region of Illinois).

The Fox Poetry Box: one of the world’s smallest, coolest outdoor poetry venues anywhere. Poetry to the people!  :- D

Imperial Germany, 1918

Who knew that buried in the prose of Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities is a poem about Imperial Germany’s growing awareness that it was on the brink of losing the First World War?

“Reading Between the Lines of A Tale of Two Cities: Imperial Germany, 1918″, at Bill Waters ~~ NOT Haiku!  :- D
