Poetry Friday: Haiku and Talking Recklessly About Poetry

20140515-210426.jpgPoetry Friday is hosted today by Elizabeth Steinglass.

Throughout the year there is a monthly peer reviewed contest for haiku enthusiasts. It’s a great way to engage with other haiku writers. Last month the Kigo word (season word) was “slow day.”

The Free form was “allusion.” Here’s my entry:
the sound of crickets
in the bee-loud glade
he plants nine bean-rows

This month I am working on haiku for “mosquito” (Kigo) and “midnight” (free form).

I am looking for interested people to “talk recklessly” ( as William Stafford would say) about poetry for a monthly interview for Poetry Friday. Here are a couple of examples; Helen Frost, Diane Mayr, Amy VanDerwater.
Please email me at macrush53-at-yahoo-dot-com. I would like to post every second Friday.

Happy Friday.
Happy Poetry.
