THF Survey Questions

The Haiku Foundation has a question this week, in a post by Jim Kacian,  about THF Bibliography, which Charles Trumbull began.

I was grateful to see my first chapbook, And So My Soul, in the list; illustrated by Charles A. Waugaman (1932 – 2010).  I published this book in 2001, and it would be 2014 before my second chapbook, Quiet Christmas Poetry.

Charles A. Waugaman was the editor of Time Of Singing for many years.
