Poetry and Commentary

New to the Poems by Others page is Don Colburn’s “In the Workshop After I Read My Poem Aloud,” perfect for everyone who’s been in a poetry critique group. On the Poems About Haiku page, look for Richard Aldington’s untitled poem about hokku from at least seventy years ago. On the “Haiku . . . Under the Bedsheets: Juxtaposition and Seasonal Reference” essay, available through the Essays page, look for a new postscript about haiku being like a spark plug. And on the Videos page, check out the new link to my latest “How to Haiku” workshop for the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, recorded on April 17, 2021, also known as International Haiku Poetry Day.
