Haiku with friends

I haven't been writing much lately. Not just here, but in general.

I did, however, write a haiku as part of a group project with my sisters from other misters: Andi Sibley, Laura Purdie Salas, Tanita Davis, Sara Lewis Holmes, Liz Garton Scanlon and Tricia Stohr-Hunt. All seven of us wrote a haiku, inspired in part by whosever haiku came before us, then Andi suggested turning the project into a renku, which is explained much better at other people's blogs today, but which involves a two-line bridge between haiku.

I hope you'll read the entire renku over at Sara's blog. In the meantime, here's my (slight) contribution:

palest pink dogwood
April breezes whisper by
petals flutter down

Here are links to the other posts today:

Tanita Davis talks about finding April's purpose
Andi Sibley explains renku
Liz Garton Scanlon's post is here
Tricia Stohr-Hunt posts some of the conversations that led to our renku.
Laura Purdie Salas posted the complete project (in a pretty, pretty font)
Sara Lewis Holmes has the poem and some explanation.
