Haiku Evolutions

Post date: Jun 23, 2017 10:4:38 PM

One of two new additions to the Essays and Introductions pages is “Desert Heat: A Haiku Revision,” my afterword to Deep Breath: A Book of Haiku Evolutions, edited by Terry Ann Carter, published by British Columbia’s Leaf Press in 2017. My other contribution to the same book is “The Pull of Her Hand,” a short explication of how I wrote and revised one of my better-known haiku poems. But wait, there’s more. I’ve also added Naomi Beth Wakan’s “Writing a Tanka” to the Poems About Haiku page (yes, it’s easily as much about haiku as it is about tanka). Hope these various additions are helpful and interesting.
