Halfway Mark on my year journey

Halfway Mark on my year journey

I wanted to take a moment to reflect upon my haiku journey so far. Today is the halfway mark of my journey. Like the lotus flower in the picture I have not bloomed yet. 🙂 When I look back at my early haiku I can see that I was ignorant of the history of haiku and had no subtlety in my work. Over the past few months I have devoured as many books on haiku as I could, joined various organizations and submitted my work for publication (which resulted in a few publications). This weekend I will be attending “Haiku Fest” here in Chicago to continue my journey.

Thank you to all who read my work, thank you to my children for letting me have time to work and to my darling wife for her support.

Publication in World Haiku Review


I am happy to announce that one of my haiku was chosen by the editors of World Haiku Review for publication in the April edition of World Haiku Review in the category of Neo-Classical.

Here is the chosen haiku.

laughing, playing-
yellow daffodils

I want to thank my wife for the support in my writing and suggesting the last line of this haiku. I would also like to thank editor Susumu Takiguchi for choosing my humble submission.
