Modern Haiku Archive

1,000 Posts Review, From August 2016:

“This morning I am reading at the Modern Haiku Archive web site.  So interesting to read from the early years to the current years at Modern Haiku. Paul Miller is the current editor, and more information about their staff can be read here.”

Today I am reading again, and note the Volume 1 – 10 Modern Haiku Covers Index.

Modern Haiku is a print journal. Please see their site for more information. There is much to read and view there.

As a general note, I enjoy viewing cover art and learning about design. I am interested in the credits for books, journals, blogs, etc.

Vintage Picture and Two Poems

feeling new poems
fallow fields
waking up

(Time Of Singing, 2000)

This was a poem about beginning to write again, as I recall.

cup of coffee
by the water
this day to God

Now when I begin the day, I wonder what poems may be given. And when I am unable to write, I review my archives, as you know. And anytime, good to review if we can. We may be surprised to rediscover some old work. See some growth. Be encouraged to continue, try new ideas. And always beauty – I rest and look out the window. A different pace now, with peaceful gratitude.
