It’s Alan Summers’ Week once again. Alan is from the UK. Those of you who are avid readers of The Daily Haiku know that I regularly run Alan’s haiku and senryu, and often feature a week’s worth of his poetry. I have posted seven of his poems to last you the whole week, today through Sunday, Dec. 9.
We hope you enjoy these seven poems, and we do, in fact, enjoy comments about all posted poems.
Thanks to all for your readership!
