October Haiku News

Since my last post at the end of September, I had a haiku accepted for the December issue of The Heron’s Nest. Many thanks to the editors for selecting my work.

I have also had a couple poems published in the Haiku in the Workplace column written and edited by Jim Kacian for The Haiku Foundation. One appeared under the theme of “dawn in the office”:

dawn
the tractor’s seat
warms up to me

And just today, this one was published under the theme “in the stationery cupboard”:

in the stationery closet
the stacked
receptionist

Many thanks to Jim Kacian for selecting my work for his column.

And an old poem of mine appeared on Chen-ou Liu’s NeverEnding Story blog as part of a Canadian Thanksgiving special feature. I only wish he had asked my permission before using my work. This one first appeared many years ago in Simply Haiku:

Thanksgiving alone
a turkey pot pie
in the microwave

End of Summer Haiku Roundup

September has shaped up to be a pretty good month for haiku. Cherie Hunter Day accepted two poems for this fall’s issue of Mariposa. Jim Kacian published another one of my poems written in response to the “sick day” prompt for his weekly column Haiku in the Workplace over at the Haiku Foundation.

found
at a rummage sale
the one who called in sick

The summer print issue (#120) of hedgerow: a journal of small poems has finally been published, and I am pleased to have this poem included (with thanks to editor Caroline Skanne for the selection):

the arch
of her back
dune roses

And this week I received my copy of the Haiku Society of America’s members’ anthology on down the road edited by LeRoy Gorman. He selected this one of mine that was originally published in Mariposa:

restringing fence wire–
the meadowlark’s song one post
ahead of the wind

Many thanks to all the editors and publishers!

Haiku Published in Akitsu Quarterly

The Fall 2017 edition of Akitsu Quarterly has been released, and I am happy to be included with three haiku. Many thanks to editor Robin White for once again publishing a few of my haiku. Here they are:

blue hour
each fisherman in his own boat
of solitude

Earth Day–
watching horses run
out of pasture

half an apple
behind the cowboy’s back–
and the horse knows it
