dog-day paddling with jim kacian

We never need an excuse to feature Jim Kacian, our very first

Honored Guest Poet, and the generous author of a haiku-how-to

primer that premiered at this website.  Jim’s going to be in my neck

of Upstate New York this weekend (probably kayaking and feasting

with John Stevenson and Yu Chang), so I thought I send a big hello

from the multiple personalities at f/k/a.


Jim might not have seen last night’s perigean moon, but he’s

a lunar aficionado from way back:

coyote moon small




sundown —

one dog starts

them all





the melon splits

ahead of my knife —

midsummer heat









for my birthday

another trip

around the sun
