My son Nathan’s painted pumpkins.
Lots of haiku news today.
First, Haikuniverse is celebrating Halloween with a selection of 25 themed haiku and other micro-poems culled from over 200 submissions. I am happy to say my submission was chosen for publication:
squishing jello brains
between my teeth
Second, the newest issue of Mariposa hit my mailbox today, and I have two haiku and a tanka included. Here’s one of the haiku:
the falcon leaps
into its wings
And finally, I am pleased to announce that I will have a haiku in Modern Haiku‘s first issue of 2017.
Many thanks to editors Rick Lupert (Haikuniverse), Cherie Hunter Day (Mariposa), and Paul Miller (Modern Haiku).
I am delighted to announce that I will have a haiku in the next issue of Frogpond 39:3, with thanks to interim editor Christopher Patchel and interim co-editor Joyce Clement.
Here are the places to watch for my work over the next couple months: Frogpond, Mariposa, The Heron’s Nest, the Haiku Society of America’s members’ anthology, and The Haiku Calendar 2017 from Snapshot Press.
More haiku news coming soon!
I am thrilled to announce that I will have two haiku in the forthcoming issue of The Heron’s Nest scheduled for publication on December 1st. I have been publishing haiku in The Heron’s Nest since 2004, and it has long been one of my favorite journals, so it’s always a pleasure to read my work there. Many thanks to Fay Aoyagi and the rest of the editorial team!
