Today my other blog, Check It Out, is hosting Poetry Friday. There are already a lot of good links which will have you wandering on a poetry path.
This photo was taken at Tualatin Wildlife Refuge in December 2016. This image has stayed with me.
It’s been my goal to submit more poetry to publications. In December, I sent ten haiku to the Haiku Society of America for its winter issue of Frogpond. This one was selected.

Several members of the Poetry Friday community have been published in Frogpond. Submissions for the spring issue open in March. Members and nonmembers are invited to submit haiku. You might want to check them out.
Chilly pond & tree scene with a wild ending line . . . intrigued by the open question here. And applause for not only your productivity, your tenacity in sending out, but Frogpond’s wisdom in selecting this one! It seems like you have warmed several of us to consider following your don’t-give-up-path. Many appreciations, Jone. (And for the hosting at CHECK IT OUT) this past Friday. You are a poetry dynamo!
Congrats! I love the haiku and that photo — WOW! It looks like a painting!
I’m inspired by you to send some of my haiku to Frogpond. Can you submit poems that have been published on a blog?
Hi Mary Lee – Inspired by this, too, I found this to answer your Q, from the Frogpond link:
“All submissions must be original, unpublished work that is not under consideration by a print or web-based journal. While posts on Internet sites such as Facebook or Twitter are eligible, posts on blogs are not.”
No. I consider all poems on my blog drafts and if I use any, I have revised. Also, I am making a greater attempt to writing specifically for submission and then if they aren’t selected I will post on thos blog.
Love thiis haiku, Jone. Congratulations!
Love your haiku. Very unexpected last line. 🙂 Congrats to you!
I can see why this image has stayed with you! Wow, it’s a great pic and haiku. Congrats!
Wonderful, Jone, & congratulations for this wonderful haiku & photo. You really do take exceptional pics!
Congrats, Jone. Stunning photo and haiku!!
Hooray! Nice job on the Haiku. And, that last line seals the deal. TWO blogs? Oh, goodness. I can barely keep up with one.
(But you keep up with yours so well, Linda. And yes, I feel we all agree, Jone is a poetry dynamo!)
Striking haiku and image Jone. Congrats on it being included in Frogpond!
Congratulations, Jone. I love your crisp photo and the wonderful haiku.
Love this image and your haiku. Congratulations!
Congratulations, Jone! (I share the same goal.) Your haiku is perfectly timed, and the photo is indeed memorable. Thanks for the submission info.
Congrats, Jone! Love the twist in Frogpond, and your photo is breathtakingly beautiful.
Congratulations, Jone! Love the twist in your haiku!
Yay, Jone! Frogpond! That’s a terrific haiku.
