“This anthology celebrates the sixth of the biennial Haiku North America conferences. In 2001 the event finds itself at the Boston Conservatory in Boston, Massachusetts. An anthology such as this preserves not just haiku but also the spirit of the conference it represents. A paperclip may grow rusty and stain the paper to which it is attached, but age does not touch the poet who can consistently find words to illuminate the unseen or the overlooked. We trust that these poems will remain unstained by time, offering shining insights to all who will encounter them.” —from the back cover
