Folded paper birds
….haiku made from
[from HUMMINGBIRD, VOL. XVII, No. 3, March 2007]
Editor’s Note: Phyllis Walsh, though now living in a senior retirement center continues to publish HUMMINGBIRD twice a year. Wisconsin poet, CX Dillhunt is her technical editor. The latest issue: Volume XX, Number 2, is dated March 2010.
I can’t praise the beauty and significance of this truly ‘little’ magazine enough. Or be more proud that it originates from the state of Wisconsin with subscribers all over the world. Equally important how it continues to celebrate and support both new writers in search of mastering the small, haiku/haiku-like poem, while honoring as well old and new masters, from Wisconsin’s own Lorine Niedecker, to Cid Corman, Bob Arnold, Vincent Tripi, H.F. Noyes (Greece), Phyllis Walsh herself, Tom Montag, Robert Schuler, Charlie Mehrhoff, and Jim Kacian, among others. It’s always a delight to open the small envelope a couple of times a year and find the gift of a new HUMMINGBIRD humming in your hands. If the small poem is your interest or desire, you need to subscribe and support this publication. $5 an issue, $10 a year—published twice a year. -–Norbert Blei
