Sylvia Forges-Ryan

Haiku Sequence Clearing a path I follow the song of an unknown bird Still shining over the old pond light from a fallen star Sun on the horizon a child tosses sand back into the sea Learning at last how to let go--- dandelion puffs Let me die the night after the last daylily blooms Sylvia Forges-Ryan has published her poetry in Americas Review, Colere, Dogwood Review, Inquiring Mind, Insight, Shambala Sun, Tricycle, The Merton Seasonal, and the Yale Anglers’ Journal as well as in numerous anthologies. A former Editor of Frogpond, her poems have been translated into many languages. She is co-author of Take a Deep Breath: The Haiku Way to Inner Peace.
