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:

 

Halloween party–
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:

first light
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).

Happy Halloween!
