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.

This site was initially devoted to information on how to write contemporary hokku in English.  Then I decided to widen the focus to include Western poetry as well as no specific boundaries on subject matter, though the foundation of the site remains the practice of hokku.

Whatever the topic, I hope visitors will continue to find what I post here either informative or thought-provoking.
