Fairy door no. 5: Shell Cottage

Making fairy doors is fun! Here is my fifth one: Shell Cottage. :- )

National Poetry Month @ MCL, 2022

To celebrate National Poetry Month last April, Mercer County Library (Lawrence, New Jersey, branch) graciously hosted an installation of my haiku: ten yard signs placed in the grass and gardens across the front of the building.

The concept was a hit, and this year the library adopted the program and produced a dozen signs of their own! (Two of my haiku are in the mix.)

What began as a one-time “proof of concept” initiative has transformed into an annual event. Let’s hear it for poetry-loving librarians everywhere! ::applause, applause::
