    the white space
    around your poem

    I've written a lot about white space & negative space as it fascinates me. Yes, the unsaid but sometimes still known and realised feelings and words that need not be said too.
    white sails…
    a wind has also shaped
    the tree

    The wind is its own white space and more! Sometimes silent, sometimes a whisper, sometimes a roar, but always leaving negative or white space behind it.

    Where can I find more of your writing KJMUNRO?

  4. Alan Summers Says:

    Hi Donna,
    If you click onto Kathy's name under her haiku (—KJMUNRO) that will give you some bio info.
    Also if you do an internet search with "KJMUNRO" haiku you will find a few wonderful results. Happy searching! :-)

    warm regards,

    very nice, Katherine, I really like the white color in the poem.

    whiter than the moon
    white wisteria
