Camera Roll 23: A Kernel of Truth about My Winning Haiku

 23 words about a photo screenshot on my phone camera roll poetry series

I'm popping with excitement that my haiku was just chosen among 20 winners of the annual Haiku Hike poetry contest in Tucson, Arizona! 

I lived in the Old Pueblo from 2010 to 2017 and have many fond memories of this Sonoran Desert community - especially its support for the Arts! 

I am especially proud because this year's competition was stiff! 

Look at these numbers:

My poem is Haiku' #2 on Stone Avenue.

Here's the pop-out with address of my poem.

So if find yourself in Downtown Tucson (between now and June 1, 2023) and want to multitask your poetry reading with your hiking - check it out!

And if you do, can you take a selfie with my poem?  Seeing YOU and my words together would be better (and much less expensive*) than me seeing the sign myself.

*because, you know, airfare and all...

Click HERE to read all of the 2023 winners (plus, the previous 3 years' winners).

And at the top of that webpage there is a "Email Sign Up" tab so YOU can stay informed to enter next year's Haiku Hike contest - and win!

Camera Roll 23: I Know It Sounds Corny, But...


Good Mexican food is hard to come by in Switzerland. (IMHO) 

Luckily we found a Mexican grocery store in Zurich where we can buy the ingredients (at a cost!) to satisfy our super-duper-south-of-the-border cravings. 

These lovely tortillas are a firm foundation upon which my love for my husband is built! 

I bought a hearty supply for his February 13th birthday. Lucky for me, he shares!

Lucky for you, it's Poetry Friday! And St. Patrick's Day!

Being a language learner at *ahem*-years-old is daunting to say the least.
Most days it's terror-inducing when rapid-fire SchweizerDeutsch is directed at me.

But, I persevere. Schritt für Schritt...
