Although I am a mere novice at the genre of haiku, having just over two year of practice under my belt, I feel the need to learn more.

'out of the old pond and into the city'
Definitely.

The first verse sets the tonal quality of the book.

Thank you!

I hadn't long known Johannes S H Bjerg when I approached him to say something for the book, and his enthusiasm was infectious! It is a great quote isn't it? <grin>

warm regards,
Alan

Alan,

I have owned this book for a couple of years. Maybe you recall my misunderstanding about one of the haiku I misquoted to you from the book; how embarrassing 😟

Hi Lorraine!

No worries! :-)

There are some intricate haikai verses in the book, alongside some of my earlier works, and it was quite an intriguing mix that Brendan Slater put together.

That was quite a year, a completely new style, and as soon as some appeared, they got snatched up before they could reach a magazine first!  It was a very quick turnaround and the book stays fresh and relevant today because it caught a moment in my writing before that too evolved into something new again.

Good to hear from you!

warm regards,
Alan
