Haiku 2014 cover

Blossom Moon: Waukesha Haiku Group
Edited by Lee Gurga & Kelly Sauvage Angel

Modern Haiku Press, 2020

Wisconsin has an exalted status in the annals of English-language haiku. The first haiku magazine, American Haiku, was published in Platteville by James Bull and Donald Eulert in 1963. Robert Spiess, who was editor of the journal Modern Haiku from 1978 until 2002, lived in Middleton. Gayle Bull, owner of Foundry Books in Mineral Point, hosted the Cradle of American Haiku Festival from 2003 until 2018. And now we have three dynamic haiku groups, including Dan Schwerin’s monthly haiku gatherings in Waukesha, to add to the glory of Wisconsin haiku.

Modern Haiku 1-10 CD cover

lakes & now wolves
by Scott Metz

with an introduction by the Philip Rowland
Modern Haiku Press, 2012
ISBN 978-0-9741894-9-9

The poems in this book are gathered under three section-headings, each based . . . on the opening phrase of Metz's signature haiku: "lakes / & now wolves / entering Pegasus."The first section, "lakes," gathers haiku that tend towards the conventional end of the spectrum in terms of form and seasonal nature-orientation. We see something of the romantic streak, as well as his playful allusiveness. . . . With characteristic playfulness, Metz accords "&" a section of its own, perhaps indicating that the poems grouped under that heading should be seen as transitional in the progress of his work, or an as interlude of sorts. . . . The poems in the third section of this book, "now wolves," often deviate further from the norms of syntax, punctuation and lineation. . . . Metz's haiku (or "ku," as he prefers to call them) are marked not only by his exploratory, language-oriented approach, but also by his erudition, fine ear and craftsmanship. —Philip Rowland

Haiku 21: an anthology of contemporary English-language haiku.
Edited by Lee Gurga and Scott Metz
With an introduction by the editors
Modern Haiku Press, 2011

Over 600 haiku by more than 200 poets.

In forms ranging from monostich to multilayer to interlinear spaces, Haiku 21 reveals a shift in haiku writing in English today. Along with typically haikuesque sensibilities come fleeting remarks, cosmic wonders, whimsies, dissonances, gritty and elegant meldings with nature, veritable koans. An eye-opening collection. --Hiroaki Sato
