In 1913, Ezra Pound published “In a Station of the Metro”, arguably the first haiku-like poem in English. Since then, haiku has proven to be one of the most vibrant (and most misunderstood or misrepresented) forms of poetry in English.
My own haiku journey began as a way to communicate the impressions gathered while cycling the forest trails, bridleways and towpaths in my area.
Haiku of mine appear in magazines such as Modern Haiku, Acorn, Frogpond, Presence, Hedgerow, Autumn Moon, Blithe Spirit, Wales Haiku Journal, NOON, Akitsu Quarterly and Chrysanthemum. A collaboration with Naviar Records has led to the composition of several musical pieces inspired by one of my haiku.
