Jim Tipton has been publishing his strong, earthy haiku for more than 4 decades. This relatively recent book (Modern English Tanka Press, 2008) finds him in fine form and speaking plainly about the things in life that matter to us all, not always the case in poetry.
You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.
Do you have a chapbook published 2010 or earlier you would like featured as a Book of the Week? Contact us for details.
