“It is not seeing what others see that makes a poet, but rather seeing the significance in what others see and think of no importance.“
I first opened a web site many years ago as a place for the discussion and teaching of hokku — the continuation in English of the old Japanese verse form that has become notoriously distorted in the West as “haiku.” I have been teaching hokku on the Internet for some sixteen years now — in fact to the best of my knowledge, I was the first person to actively teach either hokku or haiku on the Internet.
Now, all these years later, I have decided to widen the focus of the site even more by placing no specific boundaries on subject matter. So regular readers may never know just what will pop up here in the future. But whatever the topic, I hope visitors will continue to find what I post here either informative or thought-provoking or both.
