haiku updates: The Heron's Nest & A Hundred Gourds

If it's spring -- well, almost -- it must be raining haiku. 

Veteran online journal The Heron's Nest & newcomer A Hundred Gourds have new issues up this month, and I'm happy to report that I have work in both of them.  Find my single haiku in the Nest here.  Check here & here for my haiku in AHG

Both these journals offer opportunities for poetry fans to increase their knowledge of haiku & other short Asian verse forms.  The Nest is strictly haiku, but includes extensive commentary on one Editors' Choice poem per issue.  AHG features tanka, haiga, haibun, & renku in additon to haiku, & also includes articles.

Graphic novel enthusiasts might be particularly interested in a special feature this time around, The Graphic Haibun of Linda PapanicolaouIn addition to the archaeologically-themed piece "The Bone Flute," this section has links to several other graphic haibun by this innovative poet, as well as an interview with her.  Speculative poetry folks are likely to find this section intriguing as well -- I certainly did!

Linda's work is fantastic. (And your work in these issues is excellent, as always).

Thanks! I've been missing your lovely haiku & haibun in the journals, lately . . . hope you'll start submitting again soon.

I didn't submit much in 2011, but am trying to be better in 2012. I do have 2 haiku in the August issue of bottle rockets, as well as some in the August issue of Scifaikuest. I also have a couple coming up in the March 15th issue of Notes from the Gean.
