Thought you might like to have this link to the Frank Stasio show The State of Things, which featured a chilling monologue by Jeff Alguire, an argument scene between a mother and adult daughter featuring Jessicia Hieroniums and Christine Rogers, and discussion of my play Creeds by director Paul Paliyenko.

The first two nights the audiences have been great, and the cast outstanding.  Ticket sales are good but I'm sure there will be walk-ups available every night.(It is March Madness time)  If you can, go on a Friday or Saturday, when Anya Russian opens the show with a stunning Dance Overture. It only runs through April 1, Thursday through Sunday, at Common Ground Theater in Durham.

Hello, Haikuists,

Attached is the press release for Haikufest to be held Saturday, April 28, in Skokie, IL. We hope a lot of haikuists/aspiring haikuists will join us!

Members (family and friends) can RSVP to me. The public will RSVP to the Library.

We have ten readers so far, and I'd really like to nail down a definite number soon.

I think three more readers will be plenty, and I'll cut it off at that.

Generally, each reader can read three published haiku (or haiku accepted for publication) in a haiku journal/haiku anthology. If you have had more than three haiku published or accepted for publication, please read no more than four haiku. Remember, HSA members only.

 If you have any questions about this requirement, please contact me.

Also, readers should introduce themselves and briefly state how they discovered haiku, why they write it, and what inspires them to write (or something else that they feel is relevant).

Please read each haiku slowly and twice, since they are short and we want the audience to grasp them.

Ralf Bröker - Three Questions

Ralf Bröker was born in Ochtrup, Germany, in 1968. He has worked as a pr-writer in Frankfurt am Main and Dortmund. With his family, he returned to the Münsterland as a journalist and pr-consultant. His first poetic work was published in 1986. He started reading haiku, senyru and haibun in 2007 and began writing them in 2008. Ralf is a member of the German Haiku-Society. His work has appeared in German and English language haiku journals including Sommergras, Chrysanthemum, Sketchbook, Asahi Haikuist Network and The Mainichi Daily News. Ralf's eBook “Seine Blätter” was published in Haiku heute. He is the editor for Haiku from German Tongues, Kukai 2010 and a Facebook-group called haiku-like.

1) Why do you write haiku?

Haiku has become the hiking song melody of my life. It helps me watch the world and it carries my mindfulness. Haiku gives me pencil, paper and words to notice my here and now. It enables me to deal with my past and to be curious about the future. In rare moments my haiku are more than I am; it allows other people to get to know me a bit. Of course, I don’t see and can’t find my way most of the day. But I am not afraid: I hope to be a whistling haiku pupil for the rest of my life.

2) What other poetic forms do you enjoy?

I like to read all kind of lyrical poems. A good poem makes me dream - and sometimes leads me into nightmares. It shows me a world – and examines my inside. Aside from haiku I love haibun. Its prose technique and haiku spirit open a story, a thought, a feeling, so much more to readers.

3) Of the many wonderful haiku you've written, what do you consider to be your top three?

Wonderful? Many? A very few times a wonder has found its way into my words and shines into a reader’s mind. My primary merit was not to disturb …

One quick update

Norman Darlington forwarded this email from Stephen Gill:

SUNDAY, MARCH 11, 16:30 (G.M.T.), repeated SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 23:30 (G.M.T.)


In Japan, this becomes March 12 (Mon.), 01:30 and March 18 (Sun.), 08:30. Listen live here: or listen during the week at your own convenient time on the i-player here: . Go to the A-Z strip and see if the programme is there under N for ‘Narrow’ (or type ‘Narrow Road’ in the search box at top right). The 28-minute feature should be available on that site for listening for at least one week; maybe more.

The programme is about a recent visit to Tochigi, Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures in the north of Japan, tracing part of haiku poet Basho’s Oku no Hosomichi route as much as possible, but presenting a contemporary, hopefully somewhat poetic, account of the present situation there. I proposed this feature to the BBC back in April last year, but they took forever to commission it, which meant we had to travel at the coldest time of year. It was tough. Because of time constraints, the producer, Julian May, who escorted me with a microphone through Tohoku (a la ‘Sora’), has been putting the thing together without a bona fide script, although we did manage to agree on a rough running order of many of the takes. I could not write the script before we went, and was given no time to write it afterwards. In fact, I had to present ‘live’ in the field and come up with poems on the spur of the moment! Anyway, I did a lot of research before we left, so some classical Japanese haiku and tanka poems should be in there, too. I also interviewed and translated several contemporary Tohoku poets’ work. Fingers crossed that it works and that the wonderful people we met up there shine, even via their voice-overs! A great deal of material had to be left out, but has been 'archived' for possible future use. The BBC describe the programme thus... .

If you wish to donate money to a group that will use it well, might I suggest It's Not Just Mud , with whom Julian and I squeezed in a day of work. You can see some photos of the trip on my Facebook page: .

I hope you enjoy the programme.

Best regards,

Stephen (Tito)

Hello Haiku Folk,

Just a friendly reminder that the in-hand deadline is fast approaching for The Robert Spiess Memorial Haiku Awards for 2012.  I think this year's theme is especially intriguing and look forward to how it will be interpreted by haiku poets in their entries:

"Haiku have three forms or manifestations: the written, which enters the eye; the spoken, which enters the ear; and the essential . . . which enters the heart." [Prompted in part by a passage by Sa'in al-Din ibn Turkah.] (from A Year’s Speculations on Haiku by Robert Spiess and published by Modern Haiku Press, 1995).

Katikati Haiku Contest


I would be grateful if you could post/share information about this year’s Katikati Haiku Contest, a contest that is held only every 2 years. All proceeds from the contest go towards the Haiku Pathway project in Katikati, the largest collection of haiku “stones” outside Japan.

For the pathway’s 10th anniversary in 2010, 10 new poem boulders were added to the collection ... plus one more, thanks to a surprise gift from the local council. Members of Katikati Lions are now investigating a project to extend the pathway upstream, which will include new poems added to the outdoor gallery.

I worked with both 4th and 7th grades, and they wrote haiku, haibun (wonderful haibun which I will encourage the 7th graders to submit), and various prose and verse pieces in response to the Hubble Space Telescope photos.

Dear Curtis,

We are pleased to let you and the haiku community know that the winner of the 2012 Turtle Light Press Haiku Chapbook Contest is Graham High's "The Window That Closes."  It was an especially difficult job this year to pick a winner as so many of the manuscripts were of a high caliber. An honorable mention was taken by Duro Jaiye's "There Was a Time."

TLP plans to publish the winning manuscript in Spring/Summer 2013. We are also going to do an e-anthology to highlight some of the wonderful haiku found in so many of the entries and will let you know when it's up. Here's a link to the full announcment:

Re: Call for Submissions for the Next Issue

Dear Kuyu,

The next issue of World Haiku Review (WHR) is planned for Spring 2012 (end March or early April).

As for haiku poems in English or in English translation, send in by e-mail anything you like, traditional or non-traditional on any topic, free or formal style, kigo or muki, up to ten poems which have not been published or are not considered for publication elsewhere to both: AND Please use the font "Ariel", size 12 and present your haiku in the simplest and most straightforward format, all starting from the left margin, avoiding fanciful layout and formation. Please do not forget to write your country with your full name. Suggested themes: Life and late winter and/or spring scenes

For this issue the deadline is Sunday 25 March. So, please hurry. We ourselves will put selected haiku poems in either the Neo-classical, Shintai (or new style) or Vanguard sections according to their characteristics. You, as the writer, therefore need not worry abouth this classification. Just send what happens to come out best and we will do the rest.

As for other works relating to haiku (haibun, articles, essays, haiga or bookreviews on haiku etc.), just send in whatever you think would deserve publication in WHR. Once again, quality is the key.

If you have books which you wish to be reviewed, send a review copy to me.

I will mention some indications about our selection below for those who may be interested to know them. (For detailed explanation, visit the Editorial of WHR August 2011 at:

Hello, Haikuists:

I have some more details about Haikufest to be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m., Saturday, April 28 at Skokie Public Library, 5215 Oakton St., Skokie, IL.

In general, there will be a brief presentation on haiku to begin the program. Following this, we hope there will be wide participation on the part of Haiku Society members reading their work. Next, there will be time for question and answers from the audience directed to individual readers, or to the moderator about haiku, in general.  We will finish the program with an audience haiku contest.  First, Second, and Third Place Winners will receive copies of "Frogpond."

After the program, we will meet at a restaurant within a few blocks of the Library. This, of course, is optional. Non-members are welcome to join us, too. This will be followed by a Ginko walk (nature walk to inspire haiku writing). The Ginko will be held in Vernon Hills,  and Lidia Rozmus has graciously volunteered to lead it. To end the day, we will have coffee at Lidia's home.

As for Haikufest at the Library, so far, these HSA members are scheduled to read: Lidia Rozmus, Amelia Cotter, Mac Greene, John Han, Tom Chockley, Alicia Hilton, Joanne Crofton, and Tomoko Hata.  We hope more people will read, even HSA members outside the Midwest Region who may find themselves in the Chicago area. Any member who has had three or more haiku published or accepted for publication in a haiku journal or in "Ripples" newsletter may read. Please RSVP as soon as possible and let us know if you plan to read. If you have any questions about your eligibility to read, please contact me.

Once we've nailed down how many readers there will be, we will let them know the maximum number of haiku they may read. Those who read should begin by briefly introducing themselves. They may state, for example, why they like to write haiku, what inspires them to write it, or anything they feel is relevant. We have many interesting members from diverse backgrounds, so we will inspire the audience to start writing haiku, I'm sure.

Last year at Haikufest, we had more than 50 people in the audience, unrelated to members. This year, if you bring friends and family, we will get many more.  In our press release to the media and writer's organizations, etc., we will state that attendees may bring a haiku to the program to enter in the contest, or they can write one during the program when they receive inspiration from the readers.

We'd like to have a few volunteers to help sign in people who attend. It's always good to follow up with attendees and put them on our email list. And, we'd also like to have a few volunteers to help judge the audience haiku contest.

Please contact me with questions or to volunteer. Since we are volunteers, we greatly appreciate your help. And, it's a great way to feel part of the HSA community and network with other friendly members.

Thank you so much. We look forward to seeing everyone!
