Longtime Haiku Northwest member Johnny Baranski died in January of 2018 at the age of 69 in Vancouver, Washington, after a brief hospitalization. Newly added to the Poems by Haiku Northwest Members‎ page is a memorial page for Johnny, including an appreciation from Frogpond by Michael Dylan Welch, two obituaries, a biographical sketch, several photos, and sample poems, including the last haiku that Johnny wrote. Our gratitude to Johnny and his family for his life of conviction, and for his life of haiku poetry.
