Thursday notes ...



A couple of quick Thursday notes ...

The new issue of Simply Haiku, Summer 2011, is up online in which I have a review of a collection of contemporary death awareness poems, Dreams Wander On.   The formatting seems a bit off here and there but the message is spot-on.  My tardiness in delivering the article may be the cause, for which I'm bowing my head at this very moment.  This is as fine a collection of haiku and related forms as there is on any subject and those of you who know me know I don't say that lightly; definitely check it out.

Salamander Cove has reprinted a poem from Past All Traps amidst a fine selection of work by the likes of Bill Knott, Ed Baker, and Tom Montag, among others, all of which may be found here.

Finally, there have been some really wonderful poems posted from the new edition of tiny words, one of my favorite haiku sites.  Here are two examples, with link backs to the site:
