This year’s haiga selections are the result of a different process than usual to us. In May 2016 former U.S. poet laureate Billy Collins sent to The Haiku Foundation a series of haiku for our use. The thought occurred that we might ask a cadre of well-known haiga artists each to choose one of these poems and “set” it in his or her own unique style. The result is these 8 distinctive pieces of art, unmistakably the work of each artist, and yet fully collaborating with the originals of Collins, whose haiku are themselves instantly identifiable. Our thanks to all the artists who participated, and to Billy.
