Alan:

I appreciate you mentioning this book "Poetry & Place Anthology (2015).
Recently, I've also read your book review of "Earthlings" (Alan Burns) [Natural History Haiku].

I am a bit bumbling with these two topics in haiku.
In the past, I've written several haiku and senryu with a focus on "poetry of place", or so I thought.

With your input on the book review for "Earthlings" I am becoming more interested in how to know what I am reading when approaching each of these styles (categories) of haiku poem.

If I were to read each book, side by side, or one after the other, what would I be looking for when considering each as a category of haiku. This is important to me because I want to know if what I have been writing as "poetry of place" may actually be categorized as Natural History haiku.

Thanks for any pointers you can give.

Hi Jan,

Reposting my Facebook comments:

Alan Summers I've read various reactions to what is poetry of place. I like Earthlings because it captures a place and time in small incidents of nature whether they are endemic to that place or not, it captures the nature of that place regardless.

Jan Folk Benson Here are two examples of what I thought was poetry of place in haiku.

1.
Adobe Walls at dusk
crickets knit the names
of the lost

(2015 TPC, and nominated for Pushcart)

2.
hibiscus unfurl
along the Neches river
bees crescendo

(2015 Blue Hole Anthology)
(Also NeverEndingStory blogspot, Butterfly Dreams -- with this version --
hibiscus unfurl
along the river bend
bees crescendo)

Alan Summers Adobe Walls is a good specific naming of a place and pins it down geographically, and its own nature outside and characteristics be it natural history, or just the atmosphere of the place in general from human interaction, intervention, dwellings and other urban structures, as well as the non-human aspects of nature through fauna and flora.

Alan Summers So for a book or pamphlet for instance the haiku are both individual poems but also stanzas building/painting a picture of a place in time, or over time, but capturing the feel of a geographical location through its many denizens from humans, insects, larger animals, natural 'outcrops' and human artifices. The planet and its climate, regardless of whether it's human made or influenced, or just a normal shift that the planet goes through (after all humans have been on the planet for so little time) is worth recording in many ways.

Alan Summers WMF is a New York based organisation that works to protect historic places globally, so yes, I'd definitely call it poetry of place: https://www.wmf.org/who-we-are

Just put it on my iMac! Thanks so much for the link.

Been reading this anthology. And I am reminded that in every genre, poetry is wonderfully evolving, not only here in my little niche of haikai. There are experiments I don't even understand yet, and never would have been privy to had I not found this book. I am inspired.

AlanSummers

Thanks Lorraine,

yes, I'm proud I got a couple of previously unpublished haiku into this mixed genre anthology.

Also it's always good, at least in my book, to look at genres outside haiku and haikai, and even outside poetry, to inform our work.

Will enjoy reading this a few times!

Alan
