blue light
from the laptop's screen--
a break in the clouds

If you've been paying very close attention you may have noticed a few changes around the site. I've been cleaning things up in preparation for relaunching tinywords some time in the next few days. There will be new haiku, new haiga (I hope!), and new opportunities for you to participate by contributing haiku, responses, and more. Please stay tuned!

    no moonbeams tonight-
    from my bedroom window
    a light cross the bay

    Cat on the window seal.
    Full moon above the head.
    Frame for haiga.

    I'm thrilled that tinywords is coming back!!!!!!

    I was in Minneapolis & my phone beeped with a haiku - it was as if a miracle had occurred!

    ripples from a footprint
