Finding Bashō’s Child

Post date: May 06, 2019 8:58:1 PM

A new addition to the Poems About Haiku page is “Bashō’s Child,” a moving piece by W. S. Merwin that recounts a troubling incident from Bashō’s Oku no Hosomichi. What would you have done? Meanwhile, on the Interviews page, I’ve added a link to the Author Magazine Author2Author interview on Blog Talk Radio conducted with me by Bill Kenower on 16 April 2019. And on the Memorial Haiku page, I’ve belatedly added a poem in remembrance of Gary Barnes (Soji). See various other site renovations on the Appearances and Poets in the Park pages, the latter with numerous updates for this summer’s Redmond Association of Spokenword festival.
