Published in The Avocet
I just received news that two of my free verse poems will appear in the Spring issue of The Avocet, which will be out in late April. I also have a haiban in the current issue of The Weekly Avocet. Haiban are an interesting form, beginning with a prose passage and ending with a haiku. I find it surprising that I have just published a haiban while my previous posting on Goodreads author's blog included information about Narrow Road to the Interior, the work in which Matsuo Basho (1644 to 1694) formalized and popularized this form. Selections from Narrow Road to the Interior appear in collections of essays as well as collections of poetry.
