Guest Post With Dave Russo



Dave Russo took this photo of a North Carolina Haiku Society anthology that he co-edited with Lenard D. Moore.  He is the web administrator for this organization.

Learning To See The Truth was published by Rosenberry Books.

Dave also serves as a member of the Board of Directors for The Haiku Foundation; and is also the web administrator for THF.

He has a page on THF Haiku Registry, which is edited by Billie Wilson (who also serves as a board member).

Here are a few of Dave’s haiku from the registry, books, and journals.

olive blossoms . . .
the sound of a hive
in the abbey wall

sun in the bones
of a darting minnow
my cell phone rings

wind shift
a clanking bulldozer
and one spring peeper

watching the flowers
come and go
headstone angels
