The Simplicity and Depth of Haiku: Living Haiku Anthology

Dear Followers and Friends,

I am honored to be included in the Living Haiku Anthology, a significant online resource by Managing Editor Don Baird. My piece, “The Simplicity and Depth of Haiku,” is an excerpt from my book, Haiku and Senryu: A Simple Guide for All. It explains the essence of haiku for poets unfamiliar with the form or those who are learning it, or who’ve always been curious about what it is.

I hope all of you who are intrigued with The Daily Haiku postings on my blog will check out the Living Haiku Anthology,livinghaikuanthology.com/ha/defining-haiku.html. It not only contains my piece, but those of other poets whom you’ve read the work of on The Daily Haiku, such as: Don Baird, Alan Summers, and Mike Rehling, to name a few. Hansha Teki is the webmaster, and you will enjoy Hansha’s piece, too.

The Anthology also includes wonderful examples of haiku by longtime haikuists, and readings of haiku on “Haiku Aloud.” You can also submit haiku to be included in the database. The Anthology contains something for everyone at every level of their haiku endeavors.

Please avail yourselves of the Living Haiku Anthology! You will enjoy it!

And, of course, please find many posts on my blog about the essence of haiku and senryu. I hope you find my blog instructive and entertaining, and that you feel inclined to practice haiku and senryu on a regular basis.

Best Wishes for all Your Creative Efforts,

Charlotte Digregorio
