Aurora Antonovic - Three Questions

Aurora Antonovic, author, artist, poet, and Editor-in-Chief of the new literary journal, Magnapoets, visits Blogging Along Tobacco Road this week with her answers to Haiku – Three Questions:

1. Why do you write haiku?

I write haiku because I love poetry, and think that haiku's brevity is perfect for capturing and emphasizing the potency of topics such as love and death, the subjects I write about the most.

2. What other poetic forms do you enjoy?

I love tanka and sonnets the most at present.

3. Of the many wonderful haiku you've written, what do you consider to be your top three? (Please provide original publication credits.)

Please consider sending your answers to the same three questions. My goal is to make Haiku - Three Questions a weekly feature. You can submit your answers by clicking on the Contact link on this page.

Next week, Roberta Beary.
