Out of interest, Alan, are the translators of haiku from Japanese to English always haiku poets themselves? I imagine it would be quite a disadvantage if they weren't.

Thanks for posting, Alan. Some poignant work here.

This one from the list of highly commended entrants made me smile as it captured cat behaviour perfectly! :)

I'm very excited to say that the Summer haiku are going to be incorporated within the new book I am bringing out around Summer 2019.

Great to hear this is happening, Alan. :)

Great to see some of our online friends here!

Well done to all.

Thanks Alan.

re:

Do you think understanding the artist, as much as we can, gives that white space within a painting when viewing?

I write and continue to write about whitespace/negative space. Do we need to know anything about an artist or any other kind of author? I feel both no, and yes. We are coloured by what we think and what we think is coloured by what is out there, mostly incorrect.


I don’t think we have to know everything about an artist before viewing their work because, as you say, Alan, this can influence how we absorb it. However, often it can be interesting and  enriching when I read the accompanying notes in a gallery after viewing a painting.

Perhaps he's just left the brothel?

Oh, this comment did make me smile, Jan. But it’s my birthday weekend and perhaps I’m being too frivolous!

Other Haiku News / Re: Johnny Baranski passed away

This monoku from Johnny's Rosary Haiku Sequence 'Beads of Glass' for Carlos Colón is particularly pertinent (published by Bones - journal for contemporary haiku ) For those who know the rosary it is from the Glorious Mysteries.
