haiku, senryu, and tanka. My longer or other poems, selections of which are presented here, have appeared in numerous journals, mostly in California and the Pacific Northwest. Additional poems are available through the Books, Collaborations, Haiga, Rengay, and Trifolds pages. I have many more published poems still to add (not even counting haiku, senryu, and tanka), and hundreds more that I should spend more time getting published in various journals. I think that’s been one of my New Year resolutions for a decade now . . .
If you have any comments about these poems, please contact Michael Dylan Welch.
