Beside the temple pond

I love haiku. There is a presence in the words because they are so carefully chosen and mix so well with the silence in spaces between.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  1. Please help me taste this exquisite dish, your view is hidden from my perch. Please expand in what you see, where the passion exists, the ?

  2. I think it is in the silence that views are hidden. Even my view is obscured and not fully revealed. It disappears in the silence, the depth of the pool and I try to express in the next word.

  3. We love anything Temple. We especially love this. The silence leaves us with our own thoughts. Just shows a few words has more impact than a page of meaningless nothings. Great find.
