Haiku as an Approach to Infinity

Post date: May 07, 2015 12:30:36 AM

The Interviews page now features “Approaching Infinity: Interview with Michael Dylan Welch,” conducted by Robert Wilson for Simply Haiku in 2003. Not sure why I’d not posted this long before, but here it is now. Speaking of now, haiku is, as I mention in the interview, a sort of approach to infinity, a way to apprehend the now of existence. That’s a lot to ask for in haiku, but I think haiku is up for the task. And as an envoy to that posting, the Essays page includes a short piece called “Sparks: Haiku Writing Exercise #2” that recently appeared in Pebbles. Go ahead, give infinity a shot!
