Learning from Shugyō Takaha

Post date: Dec 17, 2017 12:21:25 AM

A major new contribution to my Essays page is “Arriving Geese: Learning from Shugyō Takaha,” which explores exemplary and challenging haiku by one of Japan’s most prominent haiku poets. This essay recently appeared in the Yuki Teikei Haiku Society’s annual members’ anthology. It was my profound pleasure to have once been a guest of Shugyō Takaha himself at the Museum of Haiku Literature in Tokyo.
