Haiku – Three Questions, Edited By Curtis Dunlap


Blogging Along Tobacco Road, a website created and edited by Curtis Dunlap, includes the Haiku Three Questions Series; which in turn includes many poets.

I reread my Three Questions answers, which include three of my best haiku–for my father and grandmothers–this weekend.  I realized that I described my journey to haiku.  You’ll find the links to all the poets’ answers in the right sidebar of the Tobacco Road site.

I can’t remember

I can’t remember another year when the lilacs were this plentiful and long-lasting.  May I always remember this spring.  The root systems of these old bushes must be large now.  Perhaps I grew some deeper roots too, during the years when I couldn’t write as much.  Beauty and faith sustain.
