Haiku hot off the press

a hundred gourds

Two of my haiku have just been published in the June issue of A Hundred Gourds, a Japanese-style, short form journal.

recurring headache
remembering to side-step
where I slipped last year

battle preparation
the combined whoosh
of both grans’ umbrellas

Haiku poet Kala Ramesh has produced an article on Haiku in India, which looks really interesting.

The following haiku was published in Frogpond, the journal of the American Haiku Society and I heard recently that another has been accepted, but I can’t put that up here until it has been published there!

a star-covered teacup
for the gypsy lady

Finally, I heard today that the following three were published in Shamrock, Journal of the Irish Haiku Society.

salt air
my footprints
also disappearing

cold snap –
a sparrow flicks its tail
of snowflakes

first rays
buds and mist
unfurling
