March: Forgotten Coin
deep in my pocket
Once again, I fail to find out much about the poet…”one of Britain’s foremost haiku poets” is about all I could discover about Jackie Hardy online. “Haiku: Poetry Ancient and Modern“, the book she edited where I found this haiku, provides a bit more information: she lives in, and is inspired by, rural Northumberland, and is a teacher of literature and creative writing. This beautiful little book has a clear and informative introduction , as well as an interesting cross-section of poems and accompanying Asian art.
Here’s hoping that’s a lucky penny in your pocket…with plenty of good thoughts to accompany it.
