My Dear Friends:

Lynx went online in 2000 in, the web site Jane started in 1995.

Selected Tanka/Haiku:

alone and cloaked
a walk in the woods
I am recognized
trees wave leafy boughs
flowers nod and wave

hands folded 
she models for the artist
in clay
her smile shapes within
a son who looks like him

wild lilac
a bush speaks
with bees

a bird's skull

Note: The following haiku were written by  Werner Reichhold:

on a voyage
the light in your eyes
star to star

turning loose
a herd of snowflakes
the lover's lips unseen
