I’ve been active with yet more additions to Graceguts this past month. Here’s what’s new from the month of November 2022:
New on the Essays page is “Points of Growth: Learning Haiku Truth from Louise Glück,” recently published in Haiku Canada Review.
The Collaborations page now features “A Trumpeter Swan,” a kasen renga I wrote with the late Jerry Kilbride more than thirty years ago, recently published in Frogpond.
On the Reports page, you can now find my selections and commentary for the 2022 Haiku Society of America Garry Gay Rengay Award, recently published in Frogpond. I cojudged this contest with Kristen Lindquist.
Look for my “Spine Poem” on the Poems page.
On the Commentary page, “Meteor Shower” now includes new commentary from Michael Kwan from his “Best Haiku Poems” essay.
On the Digressions page, the “Haiku Invitational” digression now includes images of all the 2022 winning poems.
On the Haiku and Senryu page, “Neverending Story” now includes the latest of my haiku translated into Chinese by Chen-ou Liu.
New to Poems About Haiku page is Wally Swist’s “Evening Snow” (for Kaji Aso), a poem of my own, “Bashō updates his haiku,” and an untitled poem by Mariel Herbert.
And check out Nothing to see a new Shiki poem at the end. Much ado!
Meanwhile, on my Rengay website, I’ve added the following new rengay:
Three of these rengay appear on the City Rengay page, where I’ve also added headings for the continents or countries containing each of the cities.
