Felicity Brookesmith


has been writing haiku "all the time" since 1998, alongside longer poetry 
(that started, age 9, with writing hymns,) finding both mutually enhancing, 
and haiku irresistible. Published in magazines& anthologies: Connections, 
Equinox, Blithe Spirit, Presence, and her collection of haiku,
"Counting Silk Houses", handmade by Colin Blundell, "Hub Editions"
is out now. The 'organic' characteristics of "dew-on-line" have given her
the unique opportunity of exploring different forms like 'Cherita' and
'tanka' as well as the 'free' forms, of her own choosing, that continue to
enhance her delight in writing poetry. Lives close to and loves the sea,
her daughters and  grandchildren, cats and other wildlife, her friends,
flowers, and playworking  with words in kaleidoscopic order.
