Montage #17

Montage #17, presented by Allan Burns, is now up here on The Haiku Foundation website. This week’s theme is “Birthdays,” marking the birth this week of three major voices in English-language haiku: Martin Shea, Nick Virgilio and John Wills.

                                   they stand in it
                                   a doorway
                                   on the other side of the rain

                                                 — Shea

birth13

                                   Easter morning . . .
                                   the sermon is taking the shape
                                   of her neighbor’s hat

                                                 — Virgilio

birth1

                                   keep out sign
                                   but the violets keep on
                                   going

                                                 — Wills
