Bloggers Photo

I'm a late babyboomer Canadian born in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Quebec, raised in Northern Ontario, now living in Ottawa, I'm finding out that oncoming golden years offer a very rich perspective on life. 

Please visit often my growing collection of poems and I hope you find many will resonate with you. I'd love to hear your comments.

I have joined Haiku Canada and invite you to read my informative blogs of April 14 and May 24, 2018.

By the way, my avatar is an ink painting I created on rice paper a while back. The symbol means PLAY - something I have finally learn how to do in later years and poetry is definitely my favourite form of play.

This contest has been judged. I wish to thank all participants.Unfortunately some entries had to be disqualified because they did not use the required "haibun" form of narrative followed by poem.

Thank you to everyone who placed. You did a superb job and I'm very appreciative!

Dear Wayne, The anthology is being compiled and the top winners of this contest will be included in same anthology. Thank you so much for asking. I am aiming for mid October to publish mainly because I am planning to also add a section on forms... but I'm hoping for an earlier launch.
