Sometimes I write "in a fugue" and can't explain. Here's my go at explaining or doing some deconstructions:  https://weirdlaburnum.wordpress.com/2019/05/19/229/#comment-51

warm regards,

Alan,

Underlayment. The layering of meaning beyond the immediate, noticeable meaning. I've never heard it called underlayment; I'll remember that.

Thank you for showing the complexity of these poems.

After writing a number of nature-based haiku I've let my more unusual side reappear with a selection of work at new magazine weird laburnum: Weird haiku. Modern haiku. New haiku. Western haiku. Gendai haiku. Short form. Minimalism. And beyond.

Journal Announcements / Re: NOON: An Anthology of Short Poems now available
« Last post by Peter Yovu on May 09, 2019, 08:39:17 AM »
The anthology is available, among several places, at Amazon US. Highly recommended, not only for the haiku (many names will be known to you, some may not be) but also as a wonderful demonstration  of the liveliness, poignancy, verve and variety of short poetry in general. It works (and plays) as  a model for how to take haiku out of its "ghetto" and place it in conversation with poems that may or may not have been influenced by it.

Journal Announcements / NOON: An Anthology of Short Poems now available
« Last post by Philip Rowland on May 09, 2019, 03:45:22 AM »
NOON: An Anthology of Short Poems, which consists of selections (with plenty of haiku) from the issues of NOON published between 2004 and 2017 (including the rare, early print issues), has just been published by Isobar Press. The link below leads to a book description, ordering information and an excerpt with my introduction to the book. Please take a look and consider supporting the press by buying a copy, and if you could spread the word or let me know if a publication you’re involved with might be interested in reviewing the book, that would be very helpful! https://isobarpress.com/titles/noon-an-anthology-of-short-poems/
