I’m thrilled that my haiku “shortest day” was selected for inclusion in Dust Devils: The Red Moon Anthology of English-Language Haiku 2016.

The Red Moon Anthology “…assembles each year the finest haiku and related forms published around the world in English.”  The poems are voted in by a panel of 11 editors from a selection of more than 3,000 haiku and related works. It’s an honour to be included in this anthology.

 

My haiku was first published in Modern HaikuWinter-Spring 2016.
