Lenard D. Moore, 'Calico Cat' haiku contest, and Modern Haiku

Haiku Society of America President, Lenard D. Moore, is the featured poet this month at the Mann Library Daily Haiku web site. You can visit the web site daily to read Lenard's poems or subscribe to the RSS feed.

Here's a video rewind of Lenard reading a haiku from last December:

This just in from Origa Olga Hooper:

Tenth bilingual 'Calico Cat' haiku contest.

Anyone may participate in this contest by sending up to three haiku on the theme of my new sumi painting "Solitude" (Goose and Torii). This contest is a blitz, so you only have two days and two nights to submit. Your haiku should appear in the comments section of this post no later than Thursday, November 5th, before 8 am EST (New York time).

For all the details, please visit:


And finally, the autumn sample issue of Modern Haiku is online featuring poems from many poets who have participated in the Three Questions project. Information about the Robert Spiess Memorial Award Haiku Competition is also available, along with an essay by Randy Brooks.

Congratulations also to Roberta Beary for having the favorite haibun of the summer issue.
