Four Haiku and a Statement

Post date: Feb 10, 2013 4:51:38 AM

New additions to this site include four haiku that originally appeared in the short poetry journal ant ant ant ant ant in 1995 (added to the Haiku and Senryu page), and a short statement on haiku, called “Into Being,” that appeared in the same issue of that journal (find it on the Essays page). This little party has a couple of gatecrashers, too. I’ve also added two haibun (on the Haibun page) from around the same time. “A Sparrow’s Call” first appeared in Mirrors in 1994, and “Jumping to the Pump” appeared in Northwest Literary Forum in 1995. These pieces seem so long ago, like a certain movie, but perhaps it’s interesting to see how I was writing back then. Anyway, check out these new additions—you wouldn’t want to miss a great opportunity here.
