As I promised yesterday, the first edition of The Heron’s Nest
for this year went online today – Volume VIII: 1 (March 2006).
In it, you will find 12 pages of haiku, by 99 haijin. Please, don’t
give up THN (or f/k/a) for Lent.
Naturally, many of our Honored Guests Poets can be found in the newest edition. Gary Hotham had two of his haiku selected:
garden path —
the same weeds
in their country
no old habits —
“thnLogoF” Because she is an associate editor for THN, the
poems of Peggy Lyles do not appear on its pages. To make
up for that sacrifice, you can enjoy four haiku from Peggy, right
here, that seem to fit right in on the day after Fat Tuesday:
chasing butterflies . . .
the girl with Wednesday’s ashes
on her brow
of air until
that blue feather’s drift
a calla lily
