My Haiku and Sketches in Plumbago!

Published in Plumbago!
Who knew I still had some poems in me? 😉

Plumbago is a periodic ‘zine published by Andy Welfle, a co-host of the Erasable podcast about pencils. In issue No. 2 (now sold out) my blog post about the various ways I use Field Notes was republished. The just-released issue No.3 has a literary theme, so I submitted some urban sketches made with pencil and wrote a haiku to go with each. It’s been decades since I wrote any poems (I have a master’s degree in creative writing, but I stopped that kind of writing when I reached my 30s), so I did it as much as a personal challenge as anything else. Shown below are the three I submitted; the first two are published in Plumbago. 

All proceeds from this issue of Plumbago are being donated to victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.


  1. What a great combination, Haiku and drawing! I ordered #3 and appreciate the info on Plumbago.
    Kudo’s on getting published!

  2. A sketcher and a poet! Great work, Tina!

    1. Aww, thanks, Ching! Not really a poet anymore, but these were fun!

  4. These are great and go so well with the sketches!
