papery waves roll,
dip and swell on forest floor–
curling storms of birch

I love birch trees, and the North Shore, where we spent the weekend, is full of them. Birch bark on the ground inspired this haiku.
Also, I have a guest post today at Emily Kristin Anderson’s blog, The Hate-Mongering Tart (who can resist that blog title?). I’m writing about “Poetic Amnesia: or What Did I Mean When I Wrote That?” Enjoy!
