A lot of my haiku come from direct experience or memories of an experience that is somehow prompted by an event in the present, Rich. I therefore used notes facility on my phone to jot down ideas as they arrive. I’m not sure that a lot of what I write cones from reading (although I guess that everything we read gets filed in our head somewhere, whether we like it or not) As a visual artist, sometimes visiting an art exhibition works wonders for me in terms of inspiration, but a walk along the shores of Carlingford Lough around the corner from my home on the east coast of Ireland usually delivers. I read a lot of poetry (other than short form) and sometimes a particular image can trigger a haiku moment. For research purposes and to keep up to date with contemporary haiku I dip into the digital resources here in THF, like Anna, and read all the online journals from around the world. I like both fairly traditional and avant garde haiku.

It's incredibly sad, and I know so many people with chronic illnesses and got to know more via Karen's involvement. I can't talk about one as it's so horribly heartbreaking on so many levels, including great injustice on a monstrous scale.

I figure that the lovely Rachel planned to end the posts after a certain time. It's very rare to publish a posthumous collection, as I know with the case of the lovely Linda Lamas, but it's actually incredibly rewarding.

It would be wonderful if a publisher was approached by her surviving family one day.


I see Rachel's blog is no longer posting her work. Sad, but inevitable. I really miss her regular posts and comments here on The Foundation and our online chats.


I was asked to contact the family shortly after her passing on behalf of a group of writers Rachel was involved, Alan. They want to put together an anthology of her work, with the proceeds going to Lupus. I hope that it comes to fruition.


Bumping this up due to imminent closing date!
