Three religious haiku

The hermit/solitary life newsletter, Raven's Bread, just published three of my haiku.

The first had been published before:

mother's rosary -
threads still hold
where links had broken.

But the other two had not been in print before:

abbey chapel -
monks celebrate Mass
as crickets chant

falling leaves -
walking the dog and praying
one bead at a time

I've now been published more that 50 times, though some of the poems have been reprints. So I think it's more accurate to say I've had more than 40 poems published.

Just enough to feel like a real poet and writer.

Pax et bonum
