into an old tin cup

a pristine trickle

New Jersey Botanical Garden haiku installation 2022

National Poetry Month was especially kind to me this year. :- )

Not only did two of my haiku get displayed on yard signs at Mercer County Library (N.J.), two others got a similar treatment at the New Jersey Botanical Garden as part of the Haiku Poets of the Garden State’s annual installation!

then trumpets:
hostas emerging

shrub bed —
scratching out a living
the sparrow

I don’t have photos of the signs to share, but one of my poems is part of a collage created by the NJBG:

Poems placed outdoors are such a pleasant surprise! Have you ever seen any? And if so, where? I’d love to hear from you! :- )
