Two of 54 Haiku from 'Upstate Dim Sum' from the Route 9 Haiku Group,
available at $5 per issue, $8 annually for two issues. US currency preferred but cheques payable to 'John Stevenson' also accepted. Orders to:
John Stevenson, POB 122, Nassau, NY, USA.


A quiet well produced book - there is a delicacy in the writing and the
black & white cover of the Adirondack mountains
is reminiscent of Chinese brushwork.

        what leaves
                        leaves limbs



        Still has a honey smell
        the jar
        the firefly's in

        the jar       


                                                                                                         the locked ward

                                                                                                the only window                                                                                                                



There are 104 diverse poems in this small book ['for the insects'] for
the reader grown tired of predictable Haiku & short verse. This is an individual
offering from an author whose voice and style of writing is nothing less than unique.

two current magazines you may wish to explore further . . .
 . . . and a Tanka contest that has been brought to my attention







b o t t l e   r o c k e t s

A Collection of Short Verse
Spring/Summer 2002  Vol. 3 N0. 2

This issue has a startling yellow cover and the Editor reminds his readers that
'The doors are always open here for the traditional, the experimental
and anything in between..'


I enjoyed:

            red rose
            one petal
            missing                                      by Viet Nguyen [Age 12]
