Tricia Knoll is a Vermont poet who maintains a daily haiku-writing practice as a way to notice what is happening in her world. Much of her poetry is eco-poetry. Her collection of poetry How I Learned To Be White received the 2018 Indie Book Award for Motivational Poetry. In recent years she has been more focused on poetry publication than haiku publication.

Selected Work
braided moon prints
in the north woods night
the stillness of deer
lady bugs
loose in the greenhouse
hot peppers
black ink on her thumb
the freelancer's
blotted safety net
a warming oven
black bananas
in the yellow bowl
swaying for the baby
hushed voices
and the first rain
a striped towel
over rising bread
the moon's transit
