I thank editor Irene Toh for including “Tenaya Moods Shared” in Red Wolf Journal. Yosemite’s beauties – especially Tenaya Lake – are sources of spiritual regeneration for all who visit them. Covid has severed us from those beauties for more than a year and our spirits suffer. Words are cabnot substitute, but I hope mine will help a little.

YDP editor Jayne Jaudon graciously included a new poem of mine on her site today. Take a peek and meet Barnaby, a very good dog. http://www.yourdailypoem.com/listpoem.jsp?poem_id=3721
Another bank of covid fog just cleared away! I discovered that Red Wolf Journal published a couple of my poems – Hummingbird and Boxing at Mar a Lago – back in October of last year. I missed the memo – no excuses! It’s a fine journal and I thank the editors most humbly!
Haiku is the most contemplative writing discipline. I turn to it when ending – or trying to begin – large projects. The respect for words haiku requires affords both healing and new focus. Now and then, I write a good one. The Haiku Journal just published one such in issue 66. Scroll way down!
Several poems of mine were published today on the Ravens Perch poetry blog. I’ll mention “Pool Decked” because it’s weather appropriate and might offer a chuckle. Don’t hesitate to look at the others, too!
