Anthology piece

 I am honored that this poem has been selected for inclusion in Jar of Rain: The Red Moon Anthology of English-Language Haiku 2020. (Originally published, selected as an Editors' Choice, in The Heron's Nest)

deep autumn 

now I am

the oldest

this poem conveys a lot about family, loss, change, aging

No wonder that it's been honored twice.

Thanks, M. Good to hear from you.

I'm currently on a break from chemotherapy

managing the cancer
the morning sound
of lawnmowers

The good news is that "Keep Walking," my third collection of haiku and senryu, is at the printer's.
