Alan Summers - haiku collected and updated for 2016 in the world's largest database for haiku: The Living Haiku Anthology

A selection of my haiku has been updated to give a cross section from 1994 to January of this year:

From the romantic:

The Night Train

of paper rock scissors

you sleep into me
Anthology Credit: c.2.2. Anthology of short-verse ed. Brendan Slater & Alan Summers
(Yet To Be Named Free Press 2013)

To undertones of Greek mythology:

night of small colour

a part of the underworld

becomes one heron
Publication Credit: Modern Haiku Vol. 45.2  Summer 2014
Anthology credit: Haiku 2015 (Modern Haiku Press, 2015)

And other old tales:

old tales
moon-bright leaves
jostle the breeze
Publication Credit:
Wild Plum 1:1 (Spring & Summer 2015)

Dreams, childhood, magic, the battle torn, train journeys, and when we are graced, the love of birdsong, love and pain, and more:

the topography
of tears
Publication Credit: Edge - BHS Anthology 2015

And the sheer beauty of natural scenery where we like being made to feel small, and in awe:

far off Helvellyn snow the nouns of verbs 
Publication Credit: Blithe Spirit 25.4 (2015)
