I just got back night before last from a month’s visit in Australia I stayed with friends in Victoria (a small town near Melbourne) and then went on vacation with them in both Victoria and New South Wales, visiting Sydney, the Blue Mountains, and Canberra.
While there, I also led a ginko in the Melbourne Botanical Gardens and visited with various haiku poets in Sydney and elsewhere. Special thanks to Cynthia and Bruce Rowe for the tour of Sydney. What a beautiful landscape! Will share more on all that later—after I recover from jet-lag and organize my many photos.
Meanwhile, this good news, which I couldn’t easily post last week:
My poem “In That Far Haven” appears in Issue Number 3 / Winter 2012 of the *Red Rose Review*: http://roseredreview.org/2012-winter-penny-harter/.
And my haibun, “Once in a Blue Moon” appears in the Winter 2012 issue of *A Hundred Gourds*: http://ahundredgourds.haikuhut.com/ahg21/haibun07.html.
