Happy New Years Eve!

Here’s my last nature haiku post for 2019, I’ve been tagging my haikus this last month as #natember, and more of my poet friends have been tweeting with #haikuforkindness #haikuforjustice #haikuforhope including: Linda Baie, Jone MacCullochJean LaTourette, Mary Lee Hahn, Catherine Flynn, Heidi Morhorst, and I’m probably leaving a few out.

Thanks for following, commenting and supporting my blog over the last year! Here’s to looking forward with many more in our New Year, and New Decade…

new snow, new year,
new decade– old hopes, old dreams,
carry through anew…

Cheers, and Happy New Year!
