2005 Scorpion Prize

In 2005, I had the privilege to select the winner for the Scorpion Prize for the online haiku journal Roadrunner. I’ve just added my Scorpion Prize selections and comments to the Essays page. This commentary was published in Roadrunner V:3, August 2005, and my selection was from poems in the previous issue, V:2, May 2005. Roadrunner, edited chiefly by Scott Metz, continues to be on the forefront of the modern trend known as gendai haiku.
