Saying Hello Again, August 11, 2021

After being absent for some weeks, here I am again. I will start posting new poems and/or haibun again soon. It already feels like it's been a long summer, recently a long HOT summer, and I've been in slow-motion for a while, concentrating on catching up with family and errands since the masked lock-down for fully-vaccinated folks ended. However, thanks to the rise of the Delta Covid variant, here we go again with the possibility of more of all that in many states! I pray we will get through this latest wave soon. I do want to announce that both my new book Still-Water Days, and last year's A Prayer the Body Makes, are available not only from Kelsay Books but also from Amazon, both here in the US and on Amazon.UK and Amazon.AU. Please stay tuned for more soon!
