Angelee Deodhar: JOURNEYS 2017, and! Joy Leftow: TUPELO HONEY

Tama, assistant editor:                                                                                                    
'Two of our bestest friends          
('and most favorite people',
states assistant ed. Frosty)
have had their latest 
('and loveliest', says Frosty)
creative endeavors published!'
'And they are must reads!'
again, Sir Frosty)

haibun, first used by Matsuo Bashō,
is now well established in world 
literature, and continues to evolve...

"haibun is a descriptive prose
scene, a special moment, or a 
wholly fictional, dreamlike space.  
The accompanying haiku directly and/or 
subtly relates to the prose, hinting
at/enhancing the heart 
essence of a haibun"

Angelee Deodhar has been/is/and,
we hope, will be everywhere in the 
creative writing/publishing community worldwide,
including! (from Miriam Sagan):

'There are ten poetry posts on Santa Fe Community College’s campus. I’m still curating them, if retired. Yesterday I walked the posts and put up 10 haibun from Angelee Deodhar in India. They speak of her many journeys, inner and outer.'

Haibun travels from India to Santa Fe thanks to Miriam Sagan first-international- contributor-angelee-deodhar/                    and!

My Puter

My computer is who I am
I type my secret thoughts 

they move into reality 
Everything about me is there 
in my puter’s desktop

Who I am, my purchases
over several years,
made by internet of course
my music, my photos, my monies,

Its all there
my poetry, short stories, my novels 

my screenplay uh, oh,
Wrote a few on a typewriter

Only hard copies there,
Oh well - almost everything
Still have hard copies of a few things
s all my letters, business correspondence

Everything, my entire life 
stands there before me 
in my computers gaze
