INFORMATION
After a brief hiatus, Gypsy returned to take her place as a valued member of Fanstory. She has taught classes, won and placed in both site and member contests, and continues to flex her community spirit by sponsoring contests, and organizing a Japanese linked poetry, multi-author Renga book. While she has written prose, Gypsy's penchant is for contemporary and traditional haiku, senryu, shadorma, sijo, and sedoka poetry among others. She is also a top-tier reviewer and has earned her place in the ranks.

Published two haiku books for sale in Amazon

    darkening the day with clouds
    darkening our spirits too

    Rain has freshened air
    making the garden smell sweet
    washing the sun in yellow
