The Haiku Foundation honors the work of contemporary masters of the dual art of haiga: visual image wedded to haiku. This month’s featured artist is Jean LeBlanc.

She writes both short-form and long-form poetry. Her publications include Just Passing Through: Tanka, Haiku, Haibun (Paulinskill Poetry Project, 2007), The Haiku Aesthetic Short Form Poetry as a Study in Craft (Cyberwit.net, 2013), The Opposite of Bird: Haiku and Haibun (Cyberwit.net, 2015), and two books from Modern English Tanka Press, Where We Go (2010) and The Stream Singing Your Name (2009).
