Up one level

by Adelaide B. Shaw

Since the pandemic began, marriages and divorces are both down from previous years. The pandemic has changed much in our lives, and, apparently, couples have put off weddings and divorces. Still, people have met and fallen in love and others have ended their relationships. These haiga are some thoughts, observations and experiences about tales of the heart.

Adelaide lives in Somers, NY. She has been creating Japanese poetic forms—haiku, haibun, tanka, tanka prose and photo haiga—for nearly fifty years and has been published widely. Her collection of haiku, An Unknown Road, won third place in the Haiku Society of America’s Merit Book Award in 2009. Her second book of haiku, The Distance I’ve Come, is available on Cyberwit and Amazon. She also writes fiction and non-fiction and has been published in several journals. Some of her published Japanese short form poetry are posted on her blog, White Petals.
