all we have lost  mist  rising from the fields



  1. I've enjoyed your blog for a long time, but your ku lately are impressing me more than ever. I really like them written in one line, for some reason. And I really like how personal they are and how they use nature to reflect what is in the mind and life of the poet -- this is one of my ideals for haiku as well.

  2. Thank you, Melissa.
    Yes, it's been a process of trial and (mainly) error that has led me to this one line style. It does solve some of the problems I was having, but whether it will be the cause of other difficulties remains to be seen. All my ku are directly from personal experience and observation, but I know that haiku are not simply short autobiographical poems and nor are they just pretty postcards.
    Haiku are something else.
    I am adding a link to your blog from this page, if that's ok.

  3. Ah yes, and it's figuring out what the "something else" is exactly that is so challenging. :) But your ku definitely transcend the postcard and confessional genres, never fear...

    I am, of course, honored to have you link to me.
