f/k/a archives . . . real opinions & real haiku

we’ve expanded the f/k/a baseball haiku page

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu — David Giacalone @ 3:39 pm

at bat neg Whether the last weeks of the season have whet your baseball appetite, your team is already out of the running, or (like Prof. Yabut) you’re not really much of a fan at all, you might want to check out the f/k/a baseball haiku page, which was revamped and expanded overnight. The page now has more than 80 haiku and senryu about baseball, from fifteen members of the f/k/a family of poets [from Roberta Beary, to Peggy Lyles, to Billie Wilson, with a male haijin or two in between]. As haikuEsq likes to say, “You don’t have to love baseball or haiku to enjoy real haiku about baseball.

Technical problems have made it a bit difficult to read and impossible to edit or add to our Baseball Haiku Page for quite awhile, but we’ve apparently got the formatting under control, in time for the MLB playoffs and World Series. As new poems are submitted or published by our Honored Guests Poets, or penned by dagosan, they will be included on the page, and first placed at the top in the Recent Additions section. Here’s what you’ll find in at the top of the BHPage today:

recent additions:
