Mainichi Daily News, Haiku in English
This was written during the Southern California Haiku Study Group kukai at the CSULB Japanese Garden.
Unfortunately, the current edition also contains a second haiku which is currently falsely attributed to me. I tried to e-mail Isamu Hashimoto but the e-mail bounced back. If anyone has a good e-mail address for Isamu, please let me know. Haiku submissions are now through an online submission form and the address I used to use for Isamu no longer seems to work.
