More Poems About Haiku

Post date: Feb 17, 2013 6:28:2 AM

Yes, there’s more! I’ve just added four new poems about haiku, by American poets, to the Poems by Others page. The first is “The Haiku Master” by Elizabeth Spires. The other three, under the heading of “Three Brautigans,” are by Richard Brautigan. They include “Haiku Ambulance,” “Homage to the Japanese Haiku Poet Issa,” and “Strawberry Haiku.” What is it about Issa? He’s always prompting tributes, perhaps more than other Japanese haiku masters put together. Here’s another one of them, short and sweet.
