Barbara is a retired nurse who has fallen in love with Japanese poetry forms, including haiku, haiga, tanka and haibun. When not writing, she can be found hiking in the woods or combing the beach, camera in hand, looking for poem, or gardening in her small backyard which the birds and the bees kindly share with her. She drops everything when the grandchildren arrive.
