  1. Poem with name of memorialized poet:

    after the brushstroke,
    his head stays tilted
    to a sun-dappled sumi-e

    Michael Dylan Welch for Kaji Aso
    Boston Haiku Society News, April 2006

  2. Sandra is correct regarding the May 4th poem:

    my friend’s death day
    tea drunk from a gallah mug
    she gave me

    Patricia Prime for Janice Bostok

  3. I’m guessing Janice Bostok with the reference to what I suppose to be galah (an Australian bird). I haven’t seen it spelled “gallah” though, so may be way off-beam.

    My Dad used to talk about young men “behaving like bloody galahs” as the birds are supposed to be bits of clowns and do daft things. Jan had a real streak of comedy in her and her timing was spot on.
