Thanks Chibi! ;-)

I reckon this is the best ever Haiku Calendar ever, and not just because I'm in it. but the sheer volume of high quality submissions that were sent in, means this is a very tight bustling collection/calendar. ;-)

yes, the Haiku Calendar is beautifully produced and just right to have handy on the desk.

I'm thrilled and honoured to have a haiku in there again this year!

Thanks for the mention, John, and congratulations to everyone with poems selected... Billie Wilson, who so kindly maintains the Registry here at THF for us all (and whom I'm in awe of), Alan Summers, Al Fogel and anyone else who might be popping in and reading here.

cheers,

Lorin
