A native of South Carolina, currently living in Midwestern US, I am a former special education teacher, elementary school principal and university professor. Haiku is my first attempt to write anything other than my doctoral dissertation and other dull scholarly publications.
My husband and I had planned extensive travel.Instead, I have the opportunity to meet people from across the world as a leader of the ME/CFS & Fibromyalgia Self-Help Program. My haiku, senryu and haibun have been published in Failed Haiku and Human/Kind Journal.

Awards and Other Honors:

Haibun "Passed On" published in Human/Kind Journal, Issue 1.4, April 2019 is nominated by Human/Kind Journal for the Pushcart Prize and the Red Moon Anthology.

Selected Work
silent phone . . .
the invisibility cloak
of chronic illness
deep in wildflowers
my feet find
his stone marker
sideways rain
pedestrians tilt
in unison
character lines
the perfectly imperfect
patina of age
rough seas
she wears his old jacket
still holding her
ashes scattered
the surfboard
gathers dust in the corner
