Simply Haiku

Power to Facebook! Robert D. Wilson directs me to this journal of Japanese short forms, and I like what I read of its haiku section. The essay on the featured haiku poet, Serbian Slavko Sedlar, may protest too much about the bastardizing of a Eastern genre by Western writers, but the haikus it quotes are quite stunning.

From Edinburgh Rob Mackenzie blogs about a haiku lecture by Madoka Mayuzumi. I like her comment about the distance between the flower heads.
