Carol O’Dell

Port Townsend, Washington

An “Army Brat,” Carol O’Dell spent her childhood in a number of countries. She wrote her first haiku in 1999. Several of these haiku were published in The Heron’s Nest. Carol enjoys living with her family, husband Christopher Herold, and daughter Vanessa Herold in Port Townsend, Washington. She finds that working is getting in the way of writing haiku these days, but hopes to have more time in the future.


snow-covered field
the impressions
of angels


the kite soars
to the end of the string
indigo sky


with soft lips
she plucks the purple thistle
shetland pony


blues on the bay
how heavy it's become
this December sky


river
the moon slowly ripples
downstream
