March and April were pretty decent months for publications for this pedometer geek poet. Some of the other published haiku have been mentioned in previous posts.
March’s edition of Stardust Haiku #51 (Poetry with a Little Sparkle) was once again a global publication. The editor, Valentina Ranaldi-Adams, included haiku from poets from Italy, India, Australia, Canada, Pakistan, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. This poet feels honored that one of my haiku was selected for inclusion in this august group. It is as follows:
her mood rises
with the sun

As this pedometer geek was writing this, Valentina Ranaldi-Adams sent out notification that she had published April’s edition, Stardust Haiku #52 (Poetry with a Little Sparkle). Again, the haiku came from around the world. There were haiku from poets in Nepal, Italy, Australia, Japan, Bulgaria, Canada, Ireland, India, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States. One of my haiku was also selected for inclusion, and it is as follows:

Check out all the haiku (and previous issues) at http://www.stardusthaiku.blogspot.com Thanks Valentina for seeing something in my haiku; it is appreciated.
The April 2021 issue of Kokako 34 was recently published as well; it contains 79 pages of haiku, tanka, haibun, and related forms from Aotearoa New Zealand and around the world, and it’s edited by Patricia Prime and Margaret Beverland. This poet is honored that the editor included two of my haiku (or could they be senryu?). Regardless of which poetry form they are considered, they are as follows:
the sequined clamor
the cheap red
they swig from the bottle
~Nancy Brady, 2021
Thank you Patrica and Margaret for seeing something in my poetry, too; it is greatly appreciated.
