Writing Reality

Post date: Dec 14, 2018 8:30:49 PM

I haven’t added a significant new piece to the Essays page in quite a few months. But now I have. Please read “First Snow on Daffodils: Writing Reality,” recently published in Nesting Dolls, the 2018 Yuki Teikei Haiku Society membership anthology. This essay explores seasonal reference in a particular Bashō poem, and how the poem appears to have two conflicting season words but actually doesn’t. This posting also includes a new postscript. Please have a look.
