The Haiku Foundation is pleased to introduce a new Forum board. Soundings, moderated by Peter Yovu, is designed as a venue for the appreciation of the individual poem. Got a favorite? Share it with us and tell us why. Over time we will together create a library of haiku appreciation. You can go here to read Soundings, or else here to register to add your own critiques. We look forward to sharing your favorite poems.

This is a wonderful idea – thanks to Peter Yovu and Jim Kacian and all who create these opportunities.

I’m beginning to learn how the Forum works, from a technical viewpoint. Yesterday I posted and at first I seemed to lose my preview, so I started over, which was fine. Another time, I lost a reply, and let it go. I wonder if I had gone past the time I logged in for? Truly not a problem, just learning.

Sometimes I link to my blogs to see how they look to readers who might find them – and a blog is not there, and I know it is there! There have been some technical difficulties from here – mostly just needing to give things a few more minutes to work sometimes. So I really don’t know why, when a link, for example, is not there – but easy to wait and try again.

Amazes me how well everything does work, and THF is an easy site to navigate. Excellent.

“The appreciation of the individual poem” – I recalled first reading haiku about the Midwest, where I’ve always lived, and posted a poem by Aubrie Cox. Will look forward to reading many poems and reflections. Hard to express how it feels when you first realize a form can say what you’ve lived and the beauty that sustains daily.

A lovely new Forum board. Thanks again. Ellen
