A Bouquet of Budbill

Post date: Aug 17, 2020 1:36:58 AM

New to the Poems About Haiku page are three poems by the late David Budbill about haiku. They are “Haiku and Tanka for Shrike,”“Making a Poem by Quoting Issa,” and an untitled poem (“Pare everything down to almost nothing”). And see also “What Issa Heard,” which I’d posted some time ago. In addition, look for thirteen more Budbill poems about haiku in “After the Haiku of Yosa Buson,” selections from his book of the same name. Budbill abounds!
