Haiku About Nothing

A new essay in the “Learning From” section of the Essays page is “Poems About Nothing: Learning Haiku from Antonio Porchia,” recently published in Juxtapositions, the Haiku Foundation journal for haiku studies. Porchia wrote a wonderful book of aphorisms that has much to say to haiku poets, with the idea that, miraculously, haiku are poems about nothing. See if you agree.
