Haiku by Keiji Minato of Japan. Keiji teaches English literature at a college in Kyoto. Keiji writes poems, haiku , senryu, and does translations. He came to see me at my haiga exhibition, and showed me his newest translation of "Haiku Guy" by David Lanoue.
Jim Kacian gave me an email today, informing the launching of a new website, The Haiku Foundation(http://www.thehaikufoundation.org). In its Digital Library, I found pdf file of "A Dozen Tongues 2000". I am happy to see this booklet has gotten an extended life in this way, for this booklet marks my first involvement with haiku and haiga.(I did the cover and illustrations)
