  • “Each of Lees haiku has the integrity of lived experience, and yet he opens up each moment so that it is no longer merely his own. He offers these moments to us as living gifts. I trust we are alive enough to fully receive them.” —from the preface by Randy Brooks

Lee Gurga lives in the country near Lincoln, Illinois, with wife Jan, sons Ben, A.J., and Alex, dog Fay, a snail, and five Haflinger horses. In 1997 he served as president of the Haiku Society of America.
