The Signature Haiku Anthology Including Senryu and Tanka, 2020

Editor: Robert Epstein

on this night
of our awareness,
the aurora
brushes an ensō
across lake and sky

Honourable Mention
2018 Sanford Goldstein International Tanka Contest

My Commentary:

This is a sketch-of-life tanka illustrating one of the most magical moments my husband and I have ever experienced while camping at our favourite lake. The aurora borealis began to shimmer in an arc above the silhouette of an island, creating a perfect reflection. For a few moments, the island appeared to be suspended in a circle of light. We were transfixed!
