Welcome to the ink drops web site. I’m your host and author, mark whitney.
ink drops is a book of 80 poems that I imagined over the course of one year. They are mostly written in the haiku style, but there are a few longer poems that may have started as haiku, but just kept going. Fields and forests, leaves, rain, moonlight, hearth and home, my dog; these are the themes running through ink drops.
On this site you can find out more about the book as well as visit the blog to get extra content like poems that didn’t make it into the print version and new work that might show up in my next book. (Yes, I’ve already started writing more.)
Use the navigation links at the top of the page to browse the site or use the links in the sidebar to search and browse by tags and categories.
I hope you enjoy your visit and that you will leave a comment or two.
