Haiku on the radio

Last week, NPR and WBUR radio program On Point held an hourlong discussion of haiku. Guests included Frogpond editor George Swede and tinywords publisher d. f. tweney. Give it a listen!

Wondering what happened to the daily haiku here? tinywords has been on a brief break while we prepare the next issue. We’ll resume publishing this week. Stay tuned!

    Hi, Mr.Tweney,

    Having listened to the wonderful program, I feel you care, I mean you are reasonable and open-minded.

    Could you please correct the introductory statement on Hisajo Sugita which is attached to her haiku of the day in you site ?

    You will know what I am talking about by finding her truly masterful haiku on white chrysanthemums translated beautifully by Ryu Yotsuya and Sue's and my responses to that haiku. I write the original Japanese haiku for the identification purpose. (shiroshiro to(5) hanabira sorinu (7) tsuki no kiku(5)).

    I have been translating as many Hisajo's haiku as I can; believing her haiku has got the special
    importance for those who write haiku in the English language. Hisajo and her family
    have suffered from the fabricated legend beyond words can say and I do not want
    that to be perpetuated in the English language haiku world.

    best wishes,
    eiko yachimoto

    Yes, thanks. That's the background for issue 10.3. We're now onto a different issue, so the layout has changed.

    Education of a person teaches him to use his education for the sake of other people also. An educated person not only keeps himself away from the wicked acts but also guides the people in his surroundings about that.

    Writing a spot may seem easy because the script is short. “Just a spot” is how it’s sometimes described, as though it’s a throwaway bit of reporting.
