Michael Fessler Week on The Daily Haiku, June 25 through July 1

It is Michael Fessler Week on The Daily Haiku, today through Saturday, July 1. Each day this week, one poem will be included from arrangements, the author’s latest collection. Michael, an American writer living in Japan,  has retired from university teaching and now devotes his time to reading, writing, and walking.

His collection, arrangements, features his haiku and senryu published from 1986-2016 in international journals and anthologies.

 

SENRYU

 

walking home

the little-leaguer

swings for the fences
