The committee for The Haiku Foundation’s Touchstone Awards for Individual Poems has announced its shortlist for 2015, and I am excited to say that one of my haiku is on the list! The Touchstone Awards recognize excellence and innovation in English-language haiku and senryu. It is quite an honor, one that I don’t take lightly, to have a poem on the shortlist. Here is a link to read the announcement and all of the shortlisted poems. Many thanks to The Haiku Foundation and to the Touchstone Awards for Individual Poems committee, and to the editorial team at The Heron’s Nest for publishing this poem.
