Today marks the beginning of National Poetry Month. I hope at some point in April you enjoy a little poetry, be it haiku or otherwise. If it’s haiku you want, I got you covered.
March didn’t seem like a very active month for me, but looking at my list of things to mention, I didn’t do too bad at all. The month began with the publication of a haiku in The Heron’s Nest:
heat ripples . . .
the horse’s tongue scrapes
Publication of a one-liner followed in Frogpond:
taking me down a gravel road the blues man’s voice
From there I got two haiku accepted for publication in Mariposa #38, and two more accepted for publication in the June issue of The Heron’s Nest.
And yesterday, Snapshot Press released the results of The Haiku Calendar Competition 2018, and two of my previously published haiku received runner-up awards, and they will appear in the Haiku Calendar 2019. It is always a pleasure to be included in something from Snapshot Press. The content is always high quality, as is the production.
Many thanks to the editors of all the publications mentioned above.
