small stones of gratitude - day 20
I give thanks for the light that is poetry, which penetrates my darkness of ill health.
(It's my birthday & I'm sharing it with readers by giving away a book. Go here.)
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.
