Update: The Haiku Foundation Education Resources

The Haiku Foundation Education Resources include a wide variety of content, by many authors.

Jim Kacian recently added to “Stories From The Field.”  There are 19 Teaching Stories listed, from the series edited and hosted by Brad Bennett and Jeannie Martin.  Each story listed to date links back to the original post at The Haiku Foundation.

January to February . . .

January thaw . . .
letting go
of old heartaches

pink clouds
span the horizon
seagulls take flight
stretching to read
new books

mid-February light
on the evergreens
easy to imagine
their new growth
in spring

reading a new book
the fragrance
of fresh paper


“January thaw” was published in A Splash of Water: Haiku Society of America 2015 Members’ Anthology, edited by Catherine J.S. Lee.  You can learn more about the HSA Members Anthology here, at their site.
