A blog devoted mainly to haiku and senryu and to thoughts about, and inspired by, haiku and senryu.

anthology pieces

I am honored to have two of my poems selected for Carving Darkness: The Red Moon Anthology of English Language Haiku 2011

mood ring
what she's not
telling me

a voice that says
my call is important
cold rain

Both have been previously posted at this blog. "mood ring" was an entry in the Shiki Monthly Kukai for December 2010 (it ran out of the money). "a voice" was first published in Modern Haiku.

This marks the fifth time in six years that I have been included in this anthology. For further information on this and other publications of the Red Moon Press, go to www.redmoonpress.com.

Great, Bill ! Félicitations ! J'aime les deux senryûs, mais - malheureusement, les deux sont difficiles à traduire.

Thank you, Bubba,

Thanks, Polona. Yes, I was pleased to see you there. I've left a comment at your blog.

Thank you, Monika. Too bad. I gain something in translation.

Well done Bill. I remember when those mood rings were all the rage - I remember a girl who used to wear one - this ku would have be welcome then!

Interesting to hear that; good news!

When my financial liquid assets turning positive (I hope as in Greek economy, too?-) I think I'll visit Red Moon Press Bookstore! ...

Meanwhile I'll read your blog, Bill!

I promise not to raise the price, tikkis.

I'd never buy one for my wife, Jem. But, then, she tells me everything.

Thanks, M
