There are several reports on Facebook of Marlene Mountain having past away.
I will try to get more details soon

Incredibly sad. We can't really know what a great haikai presence she was, but only guess.

Marlene Mountain's grandson has informed people on Marlene's page of her passing away this morning. Please drop by and leave a note on Marlene's page for Marlene, Josh, and her family. It's wonderful that she made it back to facebook recently to connect with us before passing away. It feels now like her goodbye. She was one of a kind, our Marlene. Unforgettable....

Alexis Rotella said: We emailed each other two weeks ago. One of her poems introduces the MeToo anthology...Marlene was sick for years. RIP dear poet/iconoclast.

If you are not familiar with Marlene's work, and there are still some seasoned writers who aren't, then you are both in for a treat, and a bumpy ride. Marlene was both bigger than haiku and also made it 'bigger' never ceasing to be relevant.

You feel 'bigger' having met her, an awesome force of nature, and one of our very greatest poets.
