  • “The wish in this book’s title poem drifts away like a dandelion seed, as fleeting and ephemeral as the moment that haiku reveres. Unlike that wish, the wish that Garry had for Haiku North America has not drifted away. Instead, it has seeded and taken root. The anthology you hold in your hand, the ninth in the series, is evidence of the continued growth and vibrancy of the haiku community in North America. As with previous anthologies, and in the tradition of staying on a first-name basis despite that growth, the poems in this anthology are arranged by each poet’s first name. May you, too, enjoy these poems, each one blowing in the dandelion wind.” —from the introduction
