  • Published Work, Theresa C.

    Here's some recently published work of mine:

    These three were just published in #FemkuMag, December 2019, Issue Nineteen (Editor, Lori A. Minor). The theme was "What grows in winter?" and the Guest Editor for this issue was Elizabeth Alford. Thanks to Elizabeth for including these three.

    a pile of boots
    in the mudroom


    Christmas cactus
    blooming on the ledge...
    a neighbor's wave


    another novel
    for my bedside stack...
    northern lights


    There's a lot of great work in this issue. Here's the link to #FemkuMag's issues page. Click on the December 2019 issue to download and view:

    Hi Theresa. Congratulations on the publication of these three immediate haiku. I most enjoyed the positive and negative possibilities in the imagery of the second haiku:

    Christmas cactus
    blooming on the ledge...
    a neighbor's wave

    I notice that you have used a tilde in the first haiku. Is this for ornamental reasons?
    Which punctuation mark does it represent for you? Or do you see it as its own distinct
    punctuation mark?

      Thank you so much, Myron, for your kind comments about my work. I appreciate the support. I'm pleased to read you enjoyed the 'Christmas cactus'. I added that tilde dash right before I submitted the first one; it seemed that there was a distinct pause at the end of L1, giving the reader time to envision the scene. For me when I've used a tilde in this way, it's been like a type of dash, with a little more florish. However, in thinking it over, I believe it could be seen as a distinct punctuation mark.

    I like the look of the wavy dash; it's beautiful.

      Yes, it gives the short poems an little variety.

    Here are two of mine that were recently published in the Winter 2019 issue of Akitsu Quarterly:

    first snowflakes...
    the silence between
    passing cars



    snow on pine needles
    the whisper
    of his respirator

    *I received word the other day that this poem has been selected for inclusion in leaning into reeds: The Red Moon Anthology of English-Language Haiku 2019. I'm quite honored and humbled!

    Best,
