pegging small gray from pegging the wind: The Red Moon Anthology of English-Language Haiku 2002 (Red Moon Press, 2003)

George Swede: There are very few “household words” in the world of English-language haiku, but George Swede’s work as both poet and editor has put his name on that short list. You can learn more about him and his work, at his home page, from the reviews of Almost Unseen (Brooks Books, 2000), and from biographies, such as this and that.  I’m sure, however, that the poet and psychology professor from Canada would prefer his haiku speak for themselves. Listen, and all your senses will be rewarded and enhanced.
