Thought I'd keep the "insectary" series of photos going - this month's is a honeybee working on sedum flowers. Yes, the sedum comes into flower and we're moving into another season, despite the continuing heat in the middle of the day.
There is a new monthly article, about rhythm in haiku/renku by the late John Carley (permission given before he passed away). An appreciation of his contribution to renku has been published in the new edition of A Hundred Gourds.
Matt Morden has contributed a selection to My Favourite Haiku and the Contest listings have been refreshed, including details of the NZPS haiku contest.
Thanks to those who supply information, articles, reviews, and their favourite haiku - Haiku NewZ wouldn't be the same without you and I appreciate the effort everyone puts in on behalf of this website. Thanks also to Signify, our website host, and the New Zealand Poetry Society for giving us the space on its site - free of charge.
If you'd be good enough to consider joining the NZPS, it would be a small repayment for the hosting and support that we receive out of kindness. For those within New Zealand, your membership fees are tax deductible, as is any donation you make over the top of the annual sub. Read more about joining and membership benefits here, including how to join if you live outside New Zealand.
If you'd like to recommend an article, offer to write something for these pages, or generally have something to say about haiku and its related forms, please feel free to get in touch.
And don't forget to have a look at my other web venture, Sandra's Garden. If you like it, please be sure to share it with your friends.
