Thank you so much for joining me for this blog series celebrating National Poetry Month. If you missed any posts or want to read them again, you can do so here.
I also want to say thank you to those who purchased a copy of my book, Haiku Ponderings. It’s much appreciated and I especially love it when you share pics, thoughts, or haiku! If you haven’t got your copy yet, the promotional price ($0.99 USD) for the ebook will continue until April 30. After that it goes back up to full price.
As an indie author, it warms my heart and adds a smile to my face that you’ve chosen to spend your time and money on my creation. Thank you so much!
If you want to put a wider smile on my face, please consider leaving a review on Goodreads, Amazon (Kindle or Paperback), or wherever you purchased the book. Not only does this help me out, but it also helps other readers find the book too. If you need help writing a review, check out my tutorials (with videos) for Goodreads and Amazon.
The past few months I’ve been in a bit of a dry spell when it came to writing haiku—I wasn’t nearly as prolific as I had been in the past. However, in reviewing the haiku selected for this blog series (and subsequently re-reading my collection) I’ve fallen back in love with writing haiku. (I’ve sorely missed it!)
It’s inspired me to start brainstorming ideas for future collections and episode ideas for the next season of The Haiku Pond. I’m still in the early planning stages (some of these ideas are still forming in my head!) but if you join my mailing list, it’ll be the best place to get updates for all of my projects—haiku and otherwise.
Lastly, I hope these haiku help bring a smile to your face, let you see the world from a different angle, or be more present and mindful. Before I sign off, I’ll leave you with one last haiku and it’s another one of my favorites, but I’m biased (of course) so I’ll let you decide for yourself:

But with each ending there is—
A new beginning.
