Delighted to have a poem in the current issue of Modern Haiku!
Many thanks to Geoff O'Keeffe and Zen Peacemakers International for inviting me to share and discuss my work-in-progress collection of haiku and related short form poetry titled "Upwelling" -- hope you enjoy the video of our conversation.

Exploring her recent poetry collection:
Thursday, June 9, 2022, at 12:00 PM U.S. Eastern
(Approx. 30 minutes)
Please join our Executive Director Geoff Shōun O'Keeffe, in a Peacemaker Chat on Facebook Live with Lorraine Padden, an award-winning haiku poet, dancer, singer, and non-profit leader who is also an active member and student of the Zen Peacemaker Order. Lorraine will share some of her latest poetry from “Upwelling,” a collection-in-progress that arose in response to the growing epidemic of undeniable violence and suffering exercised upon our natural and human world.
The conversation will explore Haiku and its related short forms as tiny gestures that bear witness to much greater truths—gestures offered in the hope that resilience, resistance, and compassionate action may arise and prevail.
