Bones - journal for contemporary haiku no. 16
March 15th 2019
http://bonesjournal.com/no16/bones-16.pdf


One of my students has a number of haiku in there for the very first time! :-)

Wonderful work by our very own Marion Clarke! Her work in Bones is astonishing and there is more than one way to read the words and lines. Superb and powerful work!

Work by new THF member Ray Caligiuri as well; and John McManus!

And lots more!!!

Thanks, Alan. A link I will no doubt be using many times.

edit:
Issa's travels in the western province-

when I turn around
the beautiful woman's gone—
willow tree

The verb certainly gives the interest to look deeper. This is the closest to what I was looking for to represent a death poem I have in mind.

Gabi Greve's various Kigo databases are still the best around, so a quick search showed this:

Just to ask if 'willow' on its own, within a verse, a seasonal word?

It's awesome how much she has covered around kigo and other aspects of Japanese haikai literature.

warm regards,
Alan

Glad to know you got in, Rich. I’ve heard from Bones, and am pleased to say I’ll be in there alongside you and Alan’s student! 😎😎

Alan, it’s a great journal, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks that!

Thanks John, for saying such nice things about Bones journal, as it's still close to my heart as one of three original founders, along with Sheila and Johannes. :-)

One of my students just got four out of five haiku accepted, so she's over the moon! Also haibun journal emails have been winging their way, so more and more people should be hearing from them.

Congrats Rich re Bones! :-)

warm regards,
Alan
