the old year expires.

About Colleen M. Chesebro

Colleen M. Chesebro is an American Novelist & Poet who loves writing paranormal fantasy and magical realism, cross-genre fiction, syllabic poetry, and creative nonfiction. She loves all things magical which may mean that she could be experiencing her second childhood—or not. That part of her life hasn’t been fully decided yet. A few years ago, a mystical experience led her to renew her passion for writing and storytelling. These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Faery Writer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen won the “Little and Laugh” Flash Fiction Contest sponsored by the Carrot Ranch Literary Community on November 2017, and in 2018, she won first place for the “Twisted Travel” category. Colleen lives in Arizona with her husband. When she is not writing, Colleen enjoys spending time with her husband. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. Learn more about Colleen on

  2. A very nice haiku for the time of year, Colleen. It’s wonderful how the time of year inspires us and brings out so much more which would have probably been buried deep inside of us.

  3. Love the haiku Colleen and the photo works really well with it. I just know 2015 will be great for you!💞

  4. Happy New Year!

  5. You know, you tend to write and image Haiku with a spook feel at times. Have you thought of going Edgar Allan Poe with a story?

    • I have and there will be some short stories coming where I have incorporated some of my poetry in them. I love the mysterious and unexplained. This photo of the moon I used was to represent the unknown in the new year.

  6. Really lovely image and Happy New Year to you!
