In 1913, Ezra Pound published “In a Station of the Metro”, often considered 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 paths, bridleways and towpaths in my area.

A first collection of cycling-inspired haiku is currently under review at a publishing house.
