I'm a published poet! LOL!

Bloggie friends!

I’m so tickled pink!

One of my haiku poems got accepted for publication with New Sun Rising: Stories for Japan – the charity anthology whose sale profits will go to the country’s earthquake relief efforts.

And I’m totally dumbfounded because the editors picked what I thought is the weakest - and yet the most personal - out of the five I sent.

So there you go! Sometimes wearing your heart on your sleeve, works!

Charlie says: There's something fishy going on!


Enjoy your day!
