For the past few days I’ve been dipping in and out of The Haiku Anthology. Edited by Cor Van Den Heuvel, the anthology includes more than 800 haiku and senryu written by 89 poets. All the poems have been written in English by modern poets. I’ve discovered this anthology a few years ago and it’s become a great book to have on my shelves. One of my favorite poets in the anthology is Nicholas Virgilio. Because it finally feels like autumn here in California, I wanted to share this haiku Virgilio wrote.

I’m not a huge reader of poetry, but I love dipping in and out of poetry collections and anthologies. What poetry collections and/or anthologies do you enjoy?
