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


the moon slowly ripples
