Another for my “must read” list. Your haiku have been giving me great pleasure for quite a while. Congratulations.
Congratulations, Wally. Your “mated goldfinch” particularly resonated with me this morning as I ate breakfast and saw a pair of goldfinches at the feeder. After Blowing Reeds and White Rose (not to mention the non-haiku chapbooks), this is well merited.
Bravo! Such a well-deserved recognition, for sure.
Congratulations, Wally. I especially like: ” a shadow mouses ”
I still remember both of us sending work to the Azami magazine in Osaka, Japan so many eons ago. 🙂
