Introduction to Issue 10.3

Welcome to tinywords 10.3.

cover image for tinywords issue 10.3 bookYou can read all of the poems in issue 10.3 right here. I also invite you to check out the tinywords 10.3 e-book, a nicely laid-out PDF you can read online or download.

We also offer a lovely print edition of tinywords 10.3 for $10.

The e-book and print edition have cover art generously supplied by Anne Smith, an artist and illustrator.

This issue has an urban theme, so most of the haiku, tanka and other very short poems you’ll see in the upcoming months have to do with cities (even if very loosely).

I’m very proud of the poetry that we’ll be featuring in this issue. Once again we were overwhelmed by the quantity and quality of submissions, and it was difficult to say no to many of them. I think that the 50-odd poems we’ve selected are very good, and I hope you’ll agree.

This issue would not have been possible without the enthusiastic, able, and intelligent help of assistant editors Peter Newton, David Serjeant and John Emil Vincent.

The cover art (of the Empire State building) is based on a photograph by Thomas Hawk, and is used under a Creative Commons license.

    What a great building! I can see my old dentist's office. I remember when I was ten on the open level and looked through one of the hurricane fence links down at the street and saw all those ants with toy cars:

    passing tugboat
    the smell of blossoms

    Looking forward to some good examples of urban haiku and micropoetry.

    Nothing sinister about my haiku by the way. ;-)

    hot sandwiches
    the railing spikes collect
    children's gloves

    Careful steps should be taken by government to improve the education system in rural areas. They should try to increase the efficiency of production in rural areas and give help to the natives of the rural areas. As they also have the rights to get education.
