“It is with a heavy heart that I share the sad news that Marlene Mountain passed away today. Her haiku, art, and passion for creatures large and small, love and championing the feminine wombside of life is well known around the world and she leaves a virtual mountain of inimitable creative work. She is a genuine haiku heroine whose light travels far and whose spirit will be with everyone who knew and loved her. Rest in peace dear mm…” —Tom Clausen
