I'm very pleased to let readers know that the 2012 anthology of small stones is now available on Kindle, and for pre-order on Amazon. A Blackbird Sings: a book of short poems is edited by Fiona Robyn and Kaspalita and will have a special launch on November 1st, the first ever Mindful Writing Day. Once again, people from all around the world with gather to pay attention and write it down. These small stones will be gathered by Fiona and Kaspa and published on their Writing Our Way Home blog, where they'll be giving away five free paperbacks of A Blackbird Sings to their favourites. And also on this day the Kindle version of the anthology will be FREE! Find all the Mindful Writing Day info here. I hope you'll join us. :)
Here are my two poems in the anthology, which are in good company, including many of my haiku poet friends:
Kirsten Cliff is a writer of prose and poetry: particularly haiku and tanka. She is currently working on her first collection exploring her journey through leukaemia, titled “Patient Property”. Her poetry has been published in New Zealand, Australia, India, Japan, England and America, as well as on-line. She is editor of the haikai section of “a fine line”, The Magazine of the New Zealand Poetry Society. Her other creative interests include photography and craft-making, which she often combines with her haiku and tanka to make haiga.
