September has shaped up to be a pretty good month for haiku. Cherie Hunter Day accepted two poems for this fall’s issue of Mariposa. Jim Kacian published another one of my poems written in response to the “sick day” prompt for his weekly column Haiku in the Workplace over at the Haiku Foundation.

And this week I received my copy of the Haiku Society of America’s members’ anthology on down the road edited by LeRoy Gorman. He selected this one of mine that was originally published in Mariposa:

I’m a little late in posting this, but last week hedgerow: a journal of small poems published a new tanka of mine in issue #114:
listening for tires
on gravel . . .
the inner lightning

Many thanks to Caroline Skanne for including my work. I have more work scheduled to appear in two future issues of hedgerow, so stay tuned for those!
I am pleased to announce that I have had another haiku published in Jim Kacian’s Haiku in the Workplace column just today. The theme this time around is “the first day at the new job.” With thanks to Jim, here is my offering:

I’ve been stretching out a bit this year, publishing in a number of journals I’ve never published in before. hedgerow is one of them. I had three haiku published last week in issue #99, and now three more in issue #100. It’s a great journal, one I look forward to reading every Friday when a new issue comes out. Many thanks to Caroline Skanne for publishing my work. Here are two out of the three in issue #100:

casts a shadow
my son trying
to sound it out . . .
