This just in from Peter Yovu:
Many readers of “Tobacco Road” may have already had a look at “Troutswirl”, the blog of The Haiku Foundation. If you haven’t, I highly recommend you check it out, and to all I hope you will consider posting comments under any of the various sections. I will be heading up a new section entitled “Sails”. This will be an open forum where questions central to the writing, development, and appreciation of haiku will be presented and discussed. Like other sections of the blog, its health will depend on the willingness of readers to participate. It could be seen as an extension of “Tobacco Road”.
If you would like to receive, as a preview, a few questions and subjects which are likely to be offered in the coming weeks and months, or if you have any thoughts about “Sails”, please email me at
And keep checking the site http://thehaikufoundation.org/
for updates. Hope to see you there.
