I love haiku. I’ve been keeping a haiku diary for a number of years now, so I thought: Why not have a cyberspace place where I can share my enthusiasm (if not my skill) with other closet (and out-of-the-closet and into-the-woods) haiku-ers?
Actually, I’m coming to this party a little late. Recent haiku sites have been launched on Twitter (i.e., Twaiku) as well as here. In fact, one of them, The Haiku Diaries, written by Rachel Dickinson and Jenna Schnuer, was the inspiration for launching this site. Hopefully, this blog will continue the haiku dialogue they started.
How can you help? Send me your haikus. . . . If I like them, I’ll post them. In the meantime, I’ll share some of my own–and more polished, venerable versions from real Haiku Masters–as the notion strikes. Let the games (metered but not timed, nor necessarily rhymed) begin! Happy haiku-ing. . . . Maggie
