refusing to pluck
the last petal
after the rains
the squishy sound
of my footsteps
the jazzy notes
on the rock
waiting for the red lipstick
Inspired by @MariaPierides’s Lipstick project

of red lipstick
raised eyebrows the wine taster chews the wine
A new journal, a new hybrid, and a new year!
Honored and thrilled beyond measure to have the opportunity to describe my journey from “Hairballs to Haiga” in a “craft essay,” with four of my felting haiga “haikufeltings” in the debut issue of the Journal MacQueen’s Quinterly, MacQ for short (see URLs below). Grateful to Clare MacQueen for highlighting haikufeltings in her introduction to the issue, giving this hybrid work a home among such a superb collection of writings.
Check it out! And Happy New Year!

Great news! JuxtaFive is ready and available to read online!

Mueller).

the same puddle twice . . .
