Welcome to Honored Guest Poet Tom Painting

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 10:00 pm

We are very pleased to welcome poet Tom Painting as an Honored Guest in our HAIKUesque Collection (which has moved from our Righthand Margin into the main body of this website). Check regularly at this website, for frequently-changing Honored Guest selections, by some of the best writers of English-Language haiku — now, including Tom Painting!


Tonight, you’ll find the following haiku by Tom featured in HAIKUesque:

his ex-wife’s name
opens a file


spring plowing
a flock of blackbirds
turns inside out

crows neg Tom lives in Rochester, New York, where he teaches creative writing, and helps young students appreciate and write haiku. His poetry has been selected for the past five editions of the annual Red Moon Anthology of English Language Haiku; he is the author of the haiku chapbook piano practice, and is currently 2d Vice President of the Haiku Society of America.


We are honored and grateful to be allowed to share his poetry with you.

P.S. Tom and I would both like to point you to this Collection of winning poetry from The Nicholas A. Virgilio Memorial Haiku Competition for Grades 7-12. It is inspiring and humbling to see the fine haiku being written by grade school students.
