Gulf War Haiku

Post date: Jun 22, 2012 10:25:9 PM

I’ve just added four of my haiku from the 1991 Gulf War haiku anthology I edited, The Gulf Within, to the Haiku and Senryu page. These poems from the world’s first televised war were part of an attempt to capture what it felt like to live through such a tense time in recent history, even when far removed from the actual battle lines. I believe this anthology shows, emotionally speaking, that television is almost as real an experience as actually being there.
