Haiga 317


Haiku by Stanford Forrrester. He is a poet, the past president of the Haiku Society of America, and the editor of bottle rocket: a collection of short verse. His work has been published six countries and have appeared in 17 anthologies.

I am not so much a fan of so-called Zen inspired haiku: it tends to limit the domain from where haiku springs. However, there are a few I like. Stanford san offers some of that.

Whatever one's faith is, how one views and appreciates the world and one's life becomes a good starting point of haiku. Haiku is not the divine words, but rather the human words.

And only one haiga is needed to show me how long my way will be.

Best wishes
