Dear Followers and Friends,
I have begun a new project. I will be running a daily haiku from well-known haikuists. Many are members of the Haiku Society of America of which I am Second Vice President. http://www.hsa-haiku.org.
Many of the poets featured are also ones whose work appears in my book, Haiku and Senryu: A Simple Guide for All where poems are analyzed. I hope you enjoy this feature. Some of the haiku I will be running are senryu (haiku about human nature that are often humorous.)
If these poets have a website, I have listed it. If not, I have included the title of one of their books. Check out their websites, if listed. I hope this daily haiku gets you reading and writing haiku on a daily basis, and that it deepens your understanding of haiku, a form that is often misunderstood.
