Won't bore everybody with details, but if you've got an example  (doesn't have to be your own; I'll credit accordingly) of an outerspace/ space exploration piece, please let me know and I'll fill you in on my latest project.  Great exposure for haiku poet, really, really tight deadline.

Hi Tracy:

I write scifaiku along with haiku. From your post, I'm not sure what you're looking for exactly, but these are two of mine that might work. I have others, but these were the closest to what I suspect is your theme.


first year in space:
toasting our future         
with a bag of champagne

(appeared in Scifaikuest's print issue, August 2013)


at the telescope array
intermittent burbling       
from the coffee pot

Let me know if this helps. :)

Hi Tracy,

These were part of a commission a few years back about the race to the moon that I did with respected Space Historian Piers Bizony:

deep space
it seeps into
my vertical bed

Rocket Dreams: The Race to the Moon


4 day trip
to the moon-
"the cats take it easy"

deep space silence
the moon inbetween
the beeps n'bleeps

Houston,
Tranquility Base here,
the Eagle has landed

Jules Verne novel-
the columbiad cannon
becomes reality

Buzz's footprint...
standing the test of time
and regolith

visor reflection—
first man on the moon
on record

slippery surfaces
Buzz plans seven steps ahead
in kangeroo hops

private communion
an earth-based lawsuit
becomes lunacy

felt tip pen
it becomes the engine switch
Aldrin broke

space week—
another boyscout
watches moonrise

mars landing-
a tendril of red dust
shifts from a footfall

Thanks to both of you.  I will use your poems to support examples in the interview.  How the final piece will be edited is beyond my control.  The story will air in the UK Sat. at 6 am on the BBC World Service, but I will have a link etc. after it runs.

That's great!

I feel the BBC's World Series is still incredibly important.

Thanks for the opportunity and look forward to listening to the link.

warm regards,

Alan
