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.

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

Haiku Published in The Heron’s Nest

I am pleased to be a part of another issue of The Heron’s Nest with two new haiku. Click the link to read mine on pages 8 and 10. Here is one of my two:

prairie storm
the darkness disperses
as buffalo

Thank you to Fay Aoyagi and the rest of the editorial team for selecting my poems!
