a new haiku journal, clouds peak, is accepting submission.

Thursday, April 27, 2006

i got the autumn 2006 paper wasp in the mail today. i was really surprised by this because i didn't know i was going to be in it. what's really cool about this is that this journal is from australia and tony thompson, coffe.tea.haiku, who lives only about 45 minutes away from me is in this issue as well. i have never met the guy but i think that it is pretty cool that we are representing texas haiku in australia. i'm on page 15 with the haiku below.

ash wednesday—
i dust jesus'
stained glass feet

also, i'll be updating this blog with new haiku as soon as i get out of this lazy funk. if you have free time, go check out "old story new," a new blog with some writing experiments and exercises in the realm of flash fiction and 55 word count fiction.
