Alan Summers in the new haiku anthology by Iron Press: The Humours of Haiku

"Once again, Iron Press, an independent and feisty publisher, makes a solid contribution to the library of contemporary haiku."

Michael McClintock

The Humours of Haiku where a number of my haiku appear includes these two: 

I pull its colors
to create my own state

For anyone who thinks haiku arouse only a very narrow range of emotions, this anthology - with 240 haiku by over 100 poets - is a challenge to think again.

Sadness, anger, jealousy, pity, compassion, regret and joy are just some of the emotions covered, and all within the confines of the small three line poems - confines that can often prove liberating to the practitioners of this increasingly popular literary form.
